Award Recipient

Esther Kempling

CNF Scholarship

I began my nursing career at British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) in January, 2012, and entered the hospital as a student nurse in the second week. The amazing experience I encountered was more than I had anticipated. This journey has strengthened my love of service to others in the medical field.  I have been blessed to share in the joys and sufferings of the many people I have met; I am truly honoured to take part in their care.

I am now halfway through the program and excited to continue with classes and clinical. This scholarship will help relieve a large financial load and I am extremely grateful. Upon graduation I hope to start in the emergency department and ultimately work in the intensive care unit (ICU).  I believe the ICU will fulfill my passion and longing to help patients’ physical, medical, and emotional needs, as well as allowing me to build relationships with patient and family. I also plan to volunteer in smaller communities focusing on health education and illness prevention.  As a registered nurse I look forward to working in a team and helping people in a great need.  I am thrilled to have been given this opportunity to make a positive, and in some cases, life-changing difference in someone else’s life.
