Practical Nursing Program

Masters in Nursing, Teaching Focus (Athabasca University, 2015)

B.Sc. in Nursing (University of Victoria, 2009)

Subjects: Nursing, Practical Nursing Diploma

I achieved my Registered Nurse (RN) diploma in the UK and then transitioned to earn my B.Sc. in Nursing here in Canada at the University of Victoria. As well as becoming a nurse in the UK, I achieved registration as a midwife and after years of practice, I travelled to the Cayman Islands and New Zealand for additional work experience in this field.

I came to Canada in 2002 and following the birth of my second child, I decided to actively pursue another interest in nursing — education. I joined NIC in 2004 as a sessional instructor and became a full-time faculty member in 2007. I graduated from Athabasca University in 2015 with a Masters in Nursing degree (teaching focus).

I currently teach both clinical practice and nursing theory in the Practical Nursing Diploma program. I love the challenge that my job provides and am constantly in awe of students in our program, especially when they overcome adversity to gain success — I learn a lot from them!
