Year of the Nurse blog, Ada Kwong: ‘You got to rely on each other to lift everybody back up’

Ada Kwong

UC Davis Health nurse Ada Kwong knows that there will be times when she and her peers feel burnt out – it comes with the territory. But she says maintaining a positive outlook, leaning on colleagues for support and keeping things fresh at work are the best remedies. And, along the way, Ada hopes to leave a lasting impact on patients and her co-workers.

Hear Ada describe her philosophy on her work, in her own words.

In celebration of Florence Nightingale's 200th birthday, 2020 is the Year of the Nurse. Beginning on National Nurses Week (May 6-12) and continuing throughout the year, a special blog will feature the stories, memories and motivations of UC Davis Health nurses.

Hear their words, and get to know why and how they invest such heart, passion, expertise and commitment in their life-changing work.
