Voices from the Frontline: Passionate Insights from Healthcare Professionals

Healthcare professionals stand as the pillars of compassion and care within the healthcare system. Their tireless dedication shines during emergencies, crises such as the pandemic, and even in the intimate setting of home care. Yet, amidst their valiant efforts on the frontlines, the depths of their passion for healthcare often remain untold. As a recruitment agency specializing in placing nurses and caregivers in Finland, we sought to uncover the heartfelt insights of our online community regarding their profession. Here’s a glimpse into what they cherish most about their roles.

Helping, Caring and Serving Others

For many, the privilege of serving others is a profound source of fulfillment. Financial compensation certainly matters. However, it’s the opportunity to extend care and support to those in need that truly makes their work meaningful.

“What I love about being a nurse is the unique ability that I have to help people through some of the most vulnerable times in their lives and being able to help them feel comfortable… Caring for other people makes me feel valued.”


Treating them like my own family and taking care for them is what I love most… especially for elderly patients. Listening to them share their stories and experiences in life when they were young is what made me motivated on this job because when the time comes I will become like them as well.”


While the work can be challenging at times, other health care workers found a soft spot for taking care of the elderly.

“What I love most about my job is that it made me realize how precious life is. Being in an elderly care is an eye-opener for me to make the most of my life, enjoy and have fun because when the time comes when we get older, we will only have limited capacity to do things. So for now, we should live life to the fullest and have a work-life balance.

Recovery, Happiness and Feedback

The essence of the calling often lies in the profound privilege of being a source of comfort and healing. What makes it especially meaningful is that it happens during life’s most vulnerable moments. It’s the gentle touch of reassurance, the empathetic listening, and the unwavering presence that make all the difference. A fulfilling matter for many healthcare professionals is the fact that they are able to witness patients recover.

As a nurse I feel happy when I am caring for my patients and clients, my most unforgettable moment was when I feed my patients through NG tube in ICU and witnessing patients’ remarkable recovery and knowing that I played a good role to healing journey and those patients are very strong today.”


Here’s what others have to say:

“What I love about my job is that I can share love and care with residents the same way I am just giving care to the people I love. I am happy to see that they appreciate it and they showed it by hugging me, being happy whenever I am with them and appreciating my work. What I like about working here in Finland is the work life balance. I can still enjoy my life, I can balance my priorities and enjoy the benefits I am getting from working here.”


“As a Healthcare worker, what I love most is seeing my patients happy when I care for them. It gives me so much joy.”


“I have worked as a carer for the past nine years . Through my experience l have learnt that you must be passionate with patients, caring need dedication and to put patient first as your first priority. Moreover you must love your job first more than your salary and be always there to hold a hand when needed.”
