Nurse Cheung Mission
Nurse Cheung’s Mission is to provide a safe, inclusive space for exploration, reflection, and growth with mental health and self-compassion topics. She hopes to empower individuals to take charge of their mental health and find the courage and confidence to live the life they want and deserve.
Nurse Cheung Vision
Nurse Cheung’s vision is to create a world where mental health and self-care are accepted, valued, and practiced by everyone. She wants to create a world where people can come together, talk openly about their mental health struggles and successes, and learn from one another.
I believe that mental health is a journey and not a destination. We all have moments of struggle, and it is important to recognize that these moments are part of our journey. With the right tools, we can learn how to build resilience, take charge of emotions, and live the life we want and deserve.

Before I was Jennifer Cheung, the founder of Nurse Cheung, I was Jennifer Cheung, Leading Nurse Educator in Critical Care.
I followed all the “right” steps to land my dream job in Nursing Education… only to get there and realize this wasn’t going to fulfill me.
After the 2020 COVID Pandemic, I was so burned out and had no idea what to do. Like most, if not all nurses during the pandemic, I experienced extreme anxiety, depression, and dissociation.
I KNEW I NEEDED AN EXIT STRATEGY, SO I CREATED ONE FOR MYSELF.
That’s when I discovered self-awareness, self-compassion, and deep reflection. I started connecting the dots, understanding my triggers and patterns, and getting to know myself better than ever before.
It was then that I made the conscious decision to break away from my old life and pursue a career I was passionate about – mental health and wellness.
That’s where Nurse Cheung was born.
My mission is to provide an online platform for healthcare professionals and women who are seeking self-discovery, growth, and empowerment. Using evidence-based practices and actionable tips, my goal is to help individuals gain insight on their mental health journey and learn to take charge of their emotions.
This is not only my journey but a collective one that we are all on together.
I want to be a part of the movement towards normalized conversations about mental health and provide resources and support for anyone who needs it.
My vision is to create a world where mental health and self-care are accepted, valued, and practiced by everyone.
Let’s come together, talk openly about our mental health struggles and successes, and learn from one another.
