The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has shared a mesmerising video clip of an Emirati nurse’s lifestyle. It shares the touching story of a nurse named Reem.
The clip also highlights the challenges facing the nursing profession.
The MoHAP said on Twitter, “Like Reem, many Emirati young men and women discover the enormous potential offered by the nursing profession. It is the ideal profession for everyone who loves to work with others and is looking to take responsibility and not step back in the face of challenges.”
The video starts with the words, “It is time… to stretch yourself, push yourself… time to follow your path, to play your part, be at the heart… it is time to be a nurse.”
The rhyming clip with the compelling visuals then says, “It is time for healing, it is time for feeling… It is time to take care of the future. It is time to give, time to grow. Time to join our team and make the world a better place. It is time to be a nurse.”
The Health Ministry revealed that approximately 5,000 nurses work in the frontline to combat the coronavirus pandemic in hospitals and health centres affiliated to it.
Also nursing students from various grades participated in the frontline after they received full training in infection prevention in their universities and colleges.
The Ministry also works to follow the field around the clock, study challenges and develop strategic plans to overcome them, and develop proactive plans to deal with various scenarios expected for the development of the situation.
Like Reem, several young Emiratis have taken up the responsibilities to serve the community.
