Award Recipient

Susan Poon

CNF Margaret Munro Award

My name is Susan Poon and I will be entering my fourth and final year of undergraduate nursing at the University of Calgary.  I first became interested in nursing in high school, where I volunteered at a community hemodialysis clinic in Calgary and heard many inspiring clinical stories from my two sisters, who are both nurses.  After three years of studying nursing, I can truly see why nursing is such a fascinating career.  As both a science and an art, nursing has allowed me to quench my thirst for knowledge about the human body and allowed me to meet and interact with a diverse range of interesting patients and co-workers alike.  I love how nursing has expanded my mind and humbled me at the same time.  I am passionate about nursing because it allows me to make a difference in the lives of many and the opportunity to work in so many different fields.  Through my clinical practicums, work, and volunteering, I have been able to find my passion for pediatrics, maternity, community nursing, homelessness, and research.  Upon graduating, I hope to work with homeless families on an individual and community basis, where I can be a part of the effort to eliminate homelessness in Canada.  I want to thank the Canadian Nurses Foundation for giving me the financial assistance I need to finish my schooling, so that I can focus more on my studies and continue to participate in the extracurricular activities that I love so much.
