Come as you are | Nurses

Choosing to work at the MUHC is all about finding that life-work balance

Yacine has worked as an ICU nurse at the MUHC for the past seven years. In his spare time, he devotes himself to boxing, strengthening himself physically and mentally. Yacine says that boxing is a core part of his life and fortifies his sense of determination as a nurse.

Boxing has instilled in me a mindset of perseverance and fearlessness. In the ring, it’s very important to believe in yourself, and this same mindset applies in the ICU setting. I remain composed and focused under pressure, alongside a team of absolutely incredible people. My experience working at the MUHC for the past seven years has been extremely fulfilling. 

One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is the close connection I have with doctors. Communication between nurses and doctors is integral to delivering optimal care to patients, and I feel respected by the physicians that I work with. I also appreciate the diversity of my work environment, interacting with staff and patients of multicultural backgrounds. There’s an atmosphere of understanding.

For the past 18 months, I've had the privilege of serving in a leadership role as a nurse in charge during the night shift. Bringing people together as a team has been my central focus. Teamwork is the core value in our ICU, and it’s something that I deeply believe in. I derive so much fulfilment by making a positive difference in the lives of my patients, and this fuels my dedication to my nursing practice as well as my training as a boxer.
