Award Recipient

Josh Goldstein

Judy Hill Memorial Award

I grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba and after graduating high school my goal was to become a paramedic. Throughout paramedic school I knew I wanted to work in Northern Manitoba because I understood that the experience in the north was truly special, and I was able to use a lot of the skills I learned in school in the north, whereas working within the city your scope of practice is more limited. After receiving my licensure for paramedics, not long after that I was hired to begin work in Northern Manitoba, and not long after that I successfully started a full-time position in The Pas, MB. My interest in nursing began when my work partner at the time, who was enrolled in nursing, told me he thought I would excel in nursing. So, I registered the next day, was accepted the following week and classes began a week afterwards. Currently, I am in second year nursing and still working as a paramedic. I am excited to complete my studies and shift my career from EMS to nursing. I am still undecided as to where I would like to take my nursing, but I am leaning towards working in a pediatric clinic for kids who have been recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, where I can help the child manage his or her diabetes as well as help the family with ways to support their child. I am extremely humbled for receiving this award, as this is the first time I have been recognize for my academics and I thank the CNF.
