Award Recipient

Taryn Wilton

TD Aboriginal Nursing Award – Baccalaureate

My name is Taryn Wilton and I am currently going into my second year of nursing at the University of Alberta. Being a nursing student is something that I take great pride in and that I am extremely thankful for.  I am excited to continue my journey as a second year nursing student and cannot wait for what is in store for me come this September.

I chose to become a nurse so that I could help people because to me there is nothing more rewarding. It is underestimated how much a nurse affects the lives of his or her clients. Having been a recurrent patient myself during my adolescent years, I know the impact that good care has when facing illness. My dream is to become a nurse and help my clients overcome illness like I did when I was in need. I want to be the change I want to see in the world and I know nursing will help me to do that.

Dreams are not always easy to follow. I view post-secondary education as a privilege due to the fact that many people cannot afford to go, which is why I feel honored to have received assistance from the CNF, which is allowing me to purse my dreams of becoming a nurse. This award will help me to focus on my studies.  I feel extremely blessed to have received an award through TD and CNF and cannot thank them enough for believing in me and giving me this opportunity. Thank you!
