Congratulations to Nicole who graduated from the Psychiatric Nursing Program! We thank her for her hard work on the blog and wish her the best of luck in her new career. Questions and comments will now be disabled. Please watch out for a new Psychiatric Nursing Student Blogger in the near future!
My name is Nicole and I am a student in the Regional Diploma in Psychiatric Nursing Program. I was born and raised in Penticton, a beautiful city in the Interior of British Columbia; a place I continue to proudly call home. My personal interests include reading, hiking, cooking and baking, and most importantly, spending time with family and friends. While balancing school and social life, I also work three casual clerical positions at Pentiction Regional Hospital.
Since childhood, I have dreamed of working in the healthcare industry. I chose the RDPN program because I have had experience with mental health and I hope to provide support to those in need. Upon completion of this program, I would like to gain some experience in Acute Care Psychiatry before moving on to work in Mental Health Emergency Services. I love studying medical sciences, and I hope to continue to further my education. Learning is my greatest passion, and I hope to be a ‘forever student’, never ceasing to grasp a learning opportunity that comes my way!
I am looking forward to blogging throughout the program, sharing my experiences, and introducing people to Stenberg College and the wonderful world of online education!
