Award Recipient

Amanda Bettle

Aplastic Anemia and Myelodysplasia Association of Canada Award

My name is Amanda Bettle and I have worked as a pediatric nurse at the IWK since 2002. Most of my time has involved working with the Hematology/Oncology population. I am passionate about my job as a nurse and have always had a vision to become a pediatric nurse practitioner (NP). I began the University of Toronto Pediatric NP program in September 2019 and am so excited to build on my career. I consider it a privilege to work closely with patients and their families during some of the most difficult experiences. I also love to mentor and work alongside my colleagues as well as new learners to make sure we provide the best possible care.

I think one of my biggest accomplishments right now is being able to effectively balance studies with work and my family. I have two young children who teach me so much about life and balance. My children have also taught me many lessons that I have brought to my practice. My empathy and ability to support families has increased and by nursing practice has improved as a result of the lessons I have learned from my children.

I think what I am most proud of is my positive attitude in life and in work. I strive to look for and build upon the strengths of my coworkers, patients and families. I know that when you look at the positive then more positive will follow.
