CNSA Global Nursing Student Award
My name is Megan Coles, and I am entering my fourth and final year of the Bachelor of Nursing Degree at the Centre for Nursing Studies in Newfoundland. Throughout my degree, I have received numerous awards for my academic excellence and extracurricular involvement. To be specific, I am most proud of being recognized for my outstanding success in the field of nursing at the community, provincial and national level. I am a volunteer with Eastern Health, an Advanced Medical First Responder with St. John Ambulance and a Shinerama Coordinator. Furthermore, I recently completed a Global Brigades TeleBrigade and I joined the Canadian Nursing Students Association as an Associate Delegate. To continue, I am most interested in pediatric nursing care and as such, I am an Associate Student Officer with the Canadian Association of Pediatric Nurses. I am excited to be involved with advancing pediatric nursing. Finally, I chose to become a nurse because I love helping others and because of my interest in the healthcare field. I thoroughly enjoy being at the bedside and building relationships as I care for my patients. Finally, I would like to thank the Canadian Nurses Foundation for their financial support in my academic endeavours.
