Young, Motivated and Gifted.
What a joy to have shared a cup of coffee with a young, motivated and gifted nurse, Melissa Geels who was nominated by a colleague as being an exceptional nurse. She hales from the town of Klerksdorp in North West Province. It was here in this town that she completed her matric and thought of pursuing a career in administration, however God had other plans for her!

PUTTING OTHERS BEFORE SELF. Once in a blue moon we are fortunate enough to meet someone who so intentionally flies under the radar and yet is making such a significant contribution in their profession on a daily basis.

“I DID NOT CHOOSE NURSING – NURSING CHOSE ME!” We waited one evening in the deserted reception of the beautifully renovated 2 Military Hospital in Wynberg, Cape Town. From the moment the 29 year old Captain Lebogang Ncube came running enthusiastically towards us, his bright smile and happy demeanour enlightened the entire atmosphere.

ACT JUSTLY, LOVE MERCY AND WALK HUMBLY…… There is a general misconception that nursing is only about bedside care and dealing with patients in a hospital or clinic setting. This is why our next EXCEPTIONAL NURSE STORY is so important: it sheds light on this vital and multi-faceted profession.

Our first EXCEPTIONAL NURSE story is one that embodies a single word above all the rest: COURAGE. Stories of courage are so important because it is not something we’re born with, but it is something we choose. And it’s not only something we choose once, but over and over again in the face of each new challenge, no matter how big or small.
