I graduated in June 2019 from the practical nursing program and in January 2020 I registered as a practical nurse and I am in good standing with the CNO. I have acquired multiple experiences in various clinical settings e.g., nephrology, veteran care, general medicine, nursing home, and long-term care. In addition to these experiences, I currently work in a long-term care facility. As a healthcare professional, I engage in a holistic approach to health by being open to understanding one’s lived experiences to encourage individualized care plans.
