Zwothe graduated this year from Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University with an honours degree in nursing.

Zwothe became a nurse to change how people view nurses

The bubbly and extroverted beauty said she also wanted to become a nurse to change the public's narrative of nurses being rude and incompetent in their work.

“I change the narrative by bringing them joy through simple acts like making them smile or forgetting their worries, even if it’s just for a short time. I always want to learn about their lives, families, what they like, or something extraordinary about their childhood. My smile and energy when I go to work remain even after I knock off from work. I want patients to feel free around nurses and not be scared of them,” she said.

Muthabeni told Briefly News that she also listens to her patients and attends to their emotional needs by allowing them to express their feelings, joking with them and complimenting them so that they can feel good about themselves.

She also shared the most challenging and fulfilling aspects of being a nurse.

“I’m not just a nurse at the hospital, but everywhere I go. I’m also a nurse in my community, so whenever someone needs help, I can assist, even if it’s just health education. Losing a patient is the most difficult thing because I always consider how their families feel because of the loss. The most fulfilling thing about being a nurse is learning daily by interacting with different people and attending them according to their needs,” she said.

Zwothe also said she wants a nursing doctorate in the next ten years.
