- Region: Thompson Okanagan
- Position: Registered Nurse
After graduating high school in 2005 I took three years off to work, travel and attempt to sort my future out. I chose nursing because of the endless career opportunities that nursing provides. I was accepted into TRU's 2008 Fall semester of Nursing.
Over the course of the program we learned lots, laughed more and traveled! I did a month long practicum in Lesotho, Africa and a semester in Merritt. You get a taste of many different nursing areas in the program and apply the knowledge you learn in the class room everyday. My final practicum was done in the Dialysis Unit at Royal Inland Hospital and I began working there right after graduation. I will also begin working on the medical floor in the fall.
The funding MNBC provided made it possible for me to make school the priority. I felt so lucky to have this funding as the stress of making ends meet was greatly diminished.
It was a long four years but I made lifelong friends, grew up a lot and ended up with a career! Thank you so much for making my degree go that much smoother!
