Tay Eng Soon Award 2021
School of Health & Social Sciences

Tan Keng Guan, Diploma in Nursing, was the recipient of the Tay Eng Soon Award for the most outstanding Health Sciences student in 2021. Congratulations!

A mature student, and currently a staff nurse at the Institute of Mental Health, Keng Guan decided to make a career switch to nursing in his mid-thirties. This came after he cared for his father-in-law, and witnessed the significant role nurses play in the health and well-being of the patients. He has his career goals all mapped out, and displays great determination and resolution in wanting to excel in his profession. Despite having family commitments, and facing other challenges as a mature student, he never once faltered in his efforts to be an excellent nurse to his patients.  We are so proud of you, Keng Guan!
