For many years I struggled to find my ideal career path. After completing different programs and working in many fields I knew there was something missing. I needed to find something that was not only mentally stimulating, but also made me feel good about going to work every day. Applying to nursing school was one of the best decisions I have ever made! I love working in a position where helping people is literally in the job description. I can say with confidence that nursing is the job for me! Nurses play an extremely important role within all communities. I have had the pleasure of knowing many extraordinary nurses and it is because of them that I have such high respect and appreciation for the care and well-being they provide for patients on a day to day basis.
When I first found out about CNF I was thrilled to know there were financial opportunities for nursing students like myself. I truly and honestly believe in the work that the small, but mighty team at CNF does. Volunteering with CNF is always fun and exciting! They have a wonderful and supportive staff, and I’ve really enjoyed my time with them. Not only does CNF provide opportunities for nursing students across Canada, they are investing in our nurses and improving health care for all Canadians. Although I am still a student and therefore currently not in a position to become a donor, I really love that I have the opportunity to donate my time and energy to a cause I am truly passionate about.
