Award Recipient

Harry Uppal

Extendicare Nurse Practitioner Award

I wanted to thank the CNF so very much for awarding me the Extendicare Scholarship in Gerontology. Currently, I am a Family Nurse Practitioner student, but also a Registered Nurse in British Columbia trained in the operating room, emergency department, and post-anaesthesia care unit.  As a future family NP, it will be my personal philosophy to not only make prevention, wellness, and primary healthcare education a top priority, but to also help advocate for increased primary health care services focussing upon healthy aging and disease management to a population that is living longer and afflicted with an increasing burden of chronic disease processes.

During my nursing education, I was lucky enough to complete nursing practicums in city hospitals within Nepal and the Philippines. For fun, I love to travel and play soccer whenever I can.  In my younger days, I also played competitive soccer, playing in tournaments in Wales, Scotland, and Britain.

I became a nurse to help those who cannot always help themselves; and as I become older, I know that a nurse will be there to help me too.

Thank you again very much.
