Rebecca Morash

 

Rebecca Morash is entering her fourth year of the Saskatchewan Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing program (SCBScN). After graduating from high school in 2015, Rebecca took time to work and travel, afterwards beginning the SCBScN program in 2016 on an academic merit scholarship. Being exposed to the needs of people in other regions of the world solidified her choice in pursuing nursing. Some of Rebecca’s previous work experience includes a student educator role with the Canadian Cancer Society, and a role as a support worker with the SaskAbilities council - which she continues during the school year. Rebecca believes in the balance between spiritual, mental, and physical health – and strives to provide all-encompassing, holistic care to her patients. The patient connections nurses make are crucial to the care of the whole person. Rebecca recognizes this and appreciates the SCBScN program for being based on a holistic care model, and the emphasis on the fact that nurses do not stop learning after graduation.  While a role in direct patient care is part of her plan after graduation; Rebecca has an interest in research and education for the future. She is thankful to the NURIP program for allowing her the opportunity to broaden her experience in university working alongside faculty, allowing her to see the wide range of influential roles nurses can fill in healthcare.
