A Registered Nurse for over 30 years, I have worked in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, orthopaedics, and for the past 22 years, adult Critical Care.
Upon graduating from Brandon General Hospital School of Nursing in Brandon, Manitoba, in 1987 (with honors), I began my Registered Nursing career at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta.
I earned my Baccalaureate of Nursing from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, in 1994 (with honors). Shortly thereafter, I pursued my interest in adult Critical Care. I earned my certificate in adult Critical Care Nursing from Mount Royal College in Calgary, Alberta, in 1996 (with honors), and began my ICU career at the Royal Alexandra Hospital.
While working in the adult ICU, I earned my Master of Nursing from the University of Alberta, graduating in 2004 (with honors). My thesis, Knowledge Acquisition, Knowledge Retention, and Job Satisfaction of Critical Care Nurses, has helped me identify how nurses learn, what they learn, but more importantly, enhanced a deeper understanding and appreciation of the teaching and learning process.
I have worked as Clinical Nurse Educator in the General Systems ICU at the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton for almost 5 years, and in my current position, as Clinical Nurse Educator in a 27-bed adult medical/surgical/trauma Critical Care Unit at the Royal Alexandra Hospital for almost 10 years.
I am a member of the Canadian Association of Critical Care Nurses (CACCN) and the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN). I am certified Basic Life Support (BLS), Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), and Rapid Response Team (RRT) Instructor. I have achieved and maintain specialty certification in adult Critical Care through the Canadian Nurses Association, and strongly support specialty certification for Critical Care Registered Nurses.
