Just as she was about to start a new relationship, Yiqiang was brought down by a stroke and she was stuck in a dilemma.

Wang Ruo'en (Xiang Yun), the elder sister of Ruojun, is also a Nurse Manager. Coupled with a strong yet finicky personality, she stands against injustice, adopts a stern management style and holds high expectations. As a result, she did not get along well with people and often received complaints from the families of patients. The two sisters subsequently lost their father from illness. Ruo'en could not accept the reality and put the blame on Ruojun, causing the once-loving siblings to fall out. Thankfully through the mediation of their mother, both healed and patched up. Her mother thereafter underwent surgery and needed a caretaker for her recuperation. With another patient complaint directed at her way, Ruo'en tendered resignation in a fit of fury and moved on to be a property agent.

Instead he went in search for the ideal job in life. After wandering one full circle, it dawned on him that the greatest meaning in work lies on the altruistic ability to help others and develop oneself, and extrinsic returns are immaterial. And so, he followed the footsteps of his brother and answered the calling to become a nurse.
