Award Recipient

Patricia Morris

New Brunswick PhD Nursing Scholarship

I became a nurse because I am passionate about social justice, and I wanted to combine that passion with practical work with older adults. My grandmother, mom, and sister are all nurses and I grew up understanding the important role that nurses can play in people’s lives during really vulnerable times. I love working in the community and in long-term care, and I recently got to share my love for geriatric nursing with a group of first-year students when I served as a clinical instructor at the University of New Brunswick. I am excited to be continuing my education in nursing because I believe so strongly in our role as advocates and agents of change. My research interests include best practices in dementia care for people who show challenging behaviors, and I am specifically interested in understanding the emotional impacts of these behaviors on clients and caregivers.
