My passion as a Nurse lies in providing holistic care and advancing nursing role in promoting social justice and equity. To do this, we must learn to question certain norms that may have historically alienated certain groups and hindered quality health care delivery. As nurses, we should practise cultural humility, and seek to understand the differing identities, and the intersectionality that exist for people.

 

A little about myself, my career started as a Registered Practical Nurse (RPN), and I have subsequently worked as a Registered Nurse across multiple specializations in the hospitals, long term care and end-of-life care facilities. I have spent the last 5 years as a Nurse Practitioner (NP) providing primary and rehabilitative care to adults with childhood onset chronic conditions and disabilities. My patients as a unique demographic often rely on social supports and coping skills to access healthcare and everyday life.

 

I am convinced that in every society, Nurses are uniquely placed to influence positive health and good socio-economic outcome for everyone. I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge with and learning from others.
