A career as a registered nurse is rewarding because you have the ability to impact the lives of patients in a positive way. Nursing is a career that helps you save lives, bring happiness to many, and comfort to those in need.
It seems like I always knew I would become a nurse. Even when I was very young, I wanted to be a nurse. I completed a Bachelor of Nursing degree in 2016. Since then I have completed a certificate specialized in cardiac nursing. Currently I am working on achieving my critical care nursing certificate. This will allow me to work in specialized areas such as the intensive care unit (ICU). I initially applied to the nursing program at the University of New Brunswick because I wanted to help and care for people. Since nursing is a trusted and respected profession, with good job security and satisfaction, it is a great career for me!
Nursing is a stable career that allows you to work anywhere in the world. If you enjoy caring for others and are a kind and empathetic person nursing may be the career for you!
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I hike and spend lots of time outdoors. I have recently started golfing and became a dog owner.
I work as part of an interdisciplinary team at the New Brunswick heart center, which is located in the Saint John Regional Hospital. We provide care to patients across the province who are experiencing heart health issues. I work as a registered nurse who cares for patients after they have open heart surgery.
