Sr Nabiela Hoosain

Professional Nurse and Midwife
Practice Number: 16279317

Having always been passionate about caring for people, I graduated from the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal in 2016 as a Professional Nurse with bars in Midwifery, Psychiatric and Community Health Nursing. Thereafter I moved up to Johannesburg from Kwa-Zulu Natal in hopes of advancing my career into more specialised fields. I have worked in various wards in hospitals since then, as well as an extremely busy medical centre. Personally, I feel there should be more attention placed on Primary Health Care as it is more attainable to prevent many diseases rather than to cure them.

Practice Philosophy

As a nurse, I know that every person is different and therefore requires a different approach in terms of care. Ultimately, this can only be attained by looking at a patient holistically in terms of physical, mental and social factors and not just rendering services for reasons brought forth.

Why I Love being a Nurse

The most rewarding thing about being a nurse is the ability to connect personally and deeply with patients from diverse backgrounds. Being able to help people in their most vulnerable states and at the same time, never being bored on the job because no two people are the same!
