- Position: Licensed Practical Nursing
I’ve wanted to be a nurse ever since I was nine years old, for no particular reason other than wanting to be able to help people.
Becoming a nurse was a dream that my mother encouraged and supported me in. So when I was eighteen years old, and she lost her battle with cancer, I knew without a doubt that I would one day continue to pursue the dream of nursing.
When I was twenty six years old, I applied to the Practical Nursing Program at the Okanagan College in Kelowna, BC and was accepted.
I am ¾ of the way through my program so far and am doing far better than I ever thought I would. This is due mainly to the amazing support of my husband, Daniel, as well as the incredible funding and support that was provided to me by Metis Nation BC. I do not know if I could have made it this far without them.
Having this funding has allowed me to focus and excel in my studies, without being burdened by the financial strain of attending school. I am so incredibly grateful and wouldn’t be where I am today without Metis Nation BC.
