Award Recipient

Trisha-Lee Metro

Virginia Lindabury Award

I began my journey as a nurse in 2003 as an LPN. I have since nursed in Canada, Britain, NZ and Australia. I returned to Canada in 2011 eager to move forward in my career and entered the LPN-BSN access program at UBC-Okanagan. I am currently going into my fourth year, and I am truly excited to have nearly reached this long-term goal. I currently have the privilege of working as an ESN alongside some fantastic nurses on the cardiac medical floor at Kelowna General Hospital. From past experience I know that my future in nursing will most likely be incredibly satisfying, challenging, varied and will continue to be one of the most important character building components of my life. I have committed much more than my career to nursing, and have learned that nursing is a calling, a passion and a gift-far more than just a job.

I hope to start my career in cardiac medical, moving into critical care/emergency experience, and finally extending into the realms of rural, travel and community street nursing. A long-term goal of mine is to continue my contribution to nursing by becoming a nurse practitioner. I cannot thank the CNF and all of the donors for the extremely generous contributions that you have all provided for so many others and myself. Although I may never meet any of you in person, I am forever grateful for your charity and kindness, and I hope one day to be able to pay it forward.
