Hannah (right) joined friends and fellow nursing students at a CIBC Run for the Cure event.

Hometown: London, Ontario

Program: Western-Fanshawe Collaborative Program

Year: 3rd Year

Favourite thing about Western: The community of people supporting one another.

Why Nursing: Nursing has provided me the opportunity to learn the skills associated with both the study of science and humanity. I have always wanted to help people and nursing provides the outlet for me to make that possible.

My campus/community involvement: I have helped out with various nursing student events and fundraisers. In my second year I served as the VP Western-Fanshawe Liaison and I am looking forward to being the incoming Nursing President.

Best place to study: Weldon Library on the ground floor if you are cramming for an exam and need a silent place to study. Second floor if you are studying in a group with friends.

My favourite class: Health Promotion & Caring

Best place to eat on campus: The Spoke. If you’re feeling like you need some french fries or a yummy breakfast bagel then the Spoke is the place for you!

Best way to meet other nursing students: Find out mutual interests with the students in your classes and then attend nursing events to get to know people outside the classroom.

Three words to describe being a Nursing student at Western: Supportive. Inclusive. Inspiring.

What I want to be when I grow up: I hope to work as a paediatric nurse and later pursue the nurse practitioner program to provide holistic and effective patient care to families.

My favourite Western memory: Besides getting my acceptance letter, it would have to be getting involved on the WFNSA (Western-Fanshawe Nursing Student Association), which has allowed me to meet new friends and share my passion for nursing!
