Having been a nurse in Singapore, I fully understand and accept the huge amount of responsibilities that come with the job.
But when I look at my payslip at the end of the day, I don't see enough gratitude from my organization by the measly amount I am being paid for putting my heart and soul into the care that I provide to my patients.
This in turn affects my motivation to carry on staying in the organization. Because I think I deserve much better recognition in terms of salary reimbursment for all the effort I put in and the irregular shifts including strings of night duties (4 nights in one go) I have to put up with.
I think every nurse deserves better.
It is only justified to reap according to what you sow.
