Nurses are specially trained: Health Ministry medical services director
Nurses work to ensure the well-being of patients and continue to do so long after everyone else has gone home.
The healthcare system here would also not function without them.
That is the view of the Ministry of Health's medical services director, Professor K. Satkunanantham.
"Nursing is not a job that just anybody can do - it is a profession," said Prof Satkunanantham in a post on the ministry's Facebook page on Saturday morning.
