My name is Kamal Singh. I have been nursing for the last 19 years. My nursing background extensively involves military nursing, emergency care nursing, community health, indigenous health and primary health care nursing. My other research interests include indigenous health care access, heath promotion, teaching, and learning. I chose to be a nurse because I wanted to contribute to humanity, to feel that the world was in some small way, better because I was a part of it. Nursing, for me, was the ideal choice towards realizing this goal. I chose to be a nursing lecturer for much the same reason. I find that the process of teaching can be likened to the old saying about perfume, "You can¿t' give it away without getting a little on yourself." It is rewarding not only to be a part of the process that aids individuals in realizing their career goals, but it is especially rewarding to be a part of the process that challenges everyone: myself, students, fellow lecturers, registered nurses and faculty alike, towards becoming better, more conscientious human beings. I value fairness, compassion, respect, trust, mutual learning and contribution. It is my goal that by sharing my talents and experiences, that I might help to better the greater whole, demonstrated through my interactions with patients, students and colleagues, in hospitals, at institutes of learning, and in our world community.
