Tan Chin Tuan Nursing Awards

The Tan Chin Tuan Nursing Award recognises promising and talented Enrolled Nurses who are dedicated to advancing the nursing profession locally. Founded by the D.S. Lee Foundation in 2006, the Award is open to Enrolled Nurses working in all public and private healthcare institutions in Singapore. The Award is named after the late banker and philantropist, Tan Sri (Dr) Tan Chin Tuan, in memory of his dedication, kindness and generosity, which are the same qualities embodied by those in the nursing profession.


Congratulations to the winners of the Tan Chin Tuan Nursing Award 2023!

To me, being a nurse means, going beyond ourselves, to improve patients' lives through quality, compassion and patient-centredness, treating them with passion and care.

Tan Chin Tuan Nursing Award 2021
Congratulations to the winners of the Tan Chin Tuan Nursing Award 2021!


I love being a nurse for many reasons, mostly because it has brought me into the lives of people I wouldn't have met if I weren't a nurse. Whenever a patient recognises and talks to me outside of work, or introduces me to their family by saying, "She helps take care of me", it gives me the drive and makes me proud because as a nurse, nothing is more gratifying than being there for my patients.

I strongly believe that my role as a nurse makes a difference and giving my best at work brings me immense satisfaction and joy. I am proud to share that my team members have the same belief as me and we work hard together as one Team - one Respect - one Integrity - one Compassion, one Excellence and one Patient-Centredness to provide incredible care.
