What You Didn't Learn in Nursing School: A patient advocate's diary

Release Date: 20 July 2015

Recipients of complimentary book: Ngee Ann Polytechnic [School of Health Sciences], NUH, KTPH,TTSH and some nursing lecturers.


I wrote this book to share my thoughts with nursing students [Diploma in Health Sciences (Nursing) — Ngee Ann Polytechnic, School of Health Sciences] who attended my talk in July 2015.

I also share real-life cases and hope that nursing students will pick up some learning points from them.
