Elaine Ng
Elaine Ng

Nursing has always been Elaine Ng’s passion since she was a teen. Despite her parents’ initial objection, she became a registered nurse at the age of 20 years old and progressed on to a stellar nursing career. Elaine was part of the early cohorts of the University of Sydney at SIM. She recalled being excited about the course as there was no tertiary institution for nursing in Singapore then. Today, she is the Group Head of Nursing at IHH and remains as passionate about nursing.  A nurse, a teacher, a community volunteer, Elaine wears many hats in the nursing field and community.
