Award Recipient

Lindsay MacDonald

Yvonne Andrews Award

My name is Lindsay MacDonald, I am from Bedford, Nova Scotia and I am in semester five out of eight of my nursing program at Dalhousie University. I chose nursing as a profession because I value the relationship nurses make with their  patients through having the most direct patient contact. I played competitive soccer my whole life so I thrive in a team environment where I am able to encourage participation from all members. As a nurse, I will use the leadership skills I learned through soccer to collaborate not only with other nurses on my unit but also with various members of the interdisciplinary team for creative problem solving. I have always been interested in women’s reproductive health; growing up I loved to spend my free time investigating my personal knowledge deficits surrounding reproductive and women’s health and sharing everything I had learned with family and friends. As a nurse I will be able to continue this passion by providing patient education helping women and birthing people through the labour and delivery process and/or transition to postpartum and breastfeeding. I love that as a nurse I have amazing opportunity for growth and continued learning throughout my career. I plan to always advance my practice through education and share my knowledge through teaching and mentorship.
