Erica Joe

Erica Joe 1I grew up in Merritt BC and I am from the Lower Nicola Indian Band. In 2009, I graduated with a Therapy Assistant Diploma from Okanagan College Kelowna.   While working as a therapy assistant and working at my first job in a hospital setting, I was immediately inspired to continue and further my education in the health care field.   Since then I have been working towards my dreams of going back to school to become a registered nurse.

While previously working in hospitals and long term care facilities I have realized that I have a passion for working with seniors.  My goal is to specialize in working with seniors when I graduate to promote a healthy lifestyle, make a difference in their lives, listen to their stories and learn from their past experiences.

As a CNF scholar I am looking forward to my education ahead and to be a successful registered nurse – to assist and care for others. Thank you to my donors for helping me pursue my dream; the CNF TD Aboriginal Nursing Fund will assist me in allowing me to concentrate more on my studies this academic year.
