Since young, Catherine Teo and Chen Zhen Zhen knew that they wanted to work as healthcare professionals. Upon completing their ‘A’ Levels, both successfully applied for scholarships offered by the National Healthcare Group, and were posted to the National University Hospital (NUH) after their graduation.

NUH has a staff strength of more than 5,000 healthcare professionals and offers a diverse range of career paths in hospital administration, health sciences, nursing and other healthcare services. The organisation’s effort in developing its staff potential has not gone unnoticed, having garnered the People Excellence Award in 2004 as a tribute to the professionalism and commitment of its healthcare professionals.
The accolades gained by the hospital are kudos to the hard work of healthcare professionals like Catherine, a 36-year-old advanced practice nurse and Chen Zhen Zhen, 24, an occupational therapist.
