RBC Diversity in Nursing Fund Award
The CNF RBC Diversity in Nursing scholarship will help in my nursing career immensely. As someone who pays for school on their own, it can be quite a struggle juggling school, clinical and work at the same time while still putting your all into each part of your life. With this scholarship I will be able to spend more time and focus in the clinical setting and get more out of my nursing experience. This scholarship comes at a great time as I start my community rotation in September.
This September I hope to work with at-risk teens in the Downtown Eastside or at a mental health facility in Vancouver. This area of nursing is one I am very fascinated in as I have volunteered previously with at-risk teens and have close family members who live with mental illness. I really want to have this semester to immerse myself into this area and really understand my clients. By having a scholarship take away the stress of finances, I will be able to take in and learn everything I can from this clinical experience and also be able to give as much as I can to a group of people who really need it. Because of this scholarship, I will be able to do what I love to my fullest; give back.
