Christy Hume, RPN
I have been nursing for 5 years, and graduated from Georgian College. I have worked in community, as an office nurse and now at hospice. I have always wanted to be a nurse, even as a kid. Was the “mother goose” of my friends.
The best part about being a nurse is supporting patients when they are at their most vulnerable and being able to comfort them during that time.
My niece wants to be a nurse when she grows up!
Angela Stephenson, RN
I have been a nurse for 20 years. I attended Humber College & Ryerson University. I have worked in Community Nursing, Acute Care Nursing & Hospice Nursing.
I knew from a very young age that I wanted to dedicate my life to caring for others in need and to make a difference. I wanted a career that would provide me with opportunities and experiences to learn, be challenged, and to grow both professionally and personally.
The best thing about being a nurse is creating therapeutic relationships, sharing experiences and meeting new people.
My daughter completed the RPN course and is waiting to write her exam in June, and my sister-in-law is a Registered Nurse!
Marina Littlejohns, RPN
I have been a nurse for 10 years. I attend Seneca College Class of 2011. I have worked in Addictions, Retirement and School Based (ME classroom). I chose to be a nurse as I am passionate about helping others.
The best thing about being a nurse is the stories, the smiles, the people!
I have many nurses in the family, and my son is starting the RPN program in September.
Julie Leighton-Phelps, RN
This is my 25th year of nursing in 2021. I attended Georgian College Diploma program then Ryerson University for the RN to BScN Bridge. I have worked in Med, Surgical, ICU, ER, Obstetrics, Falls Prevention, Community Program, Immunization, Hospice, Home Care and Palliative Care Network. I chose to be a nurse as I wanted to help people.
Best thing about being a nurse is being a part of their journey (having a baby, or being present at someone’s death), getting to know my patients and their families. Knowing I could help someone recover or die with dignity.
My Aunt is a Nurse and Mikayla, my daughter wants to go into nursing as she has helped take care of Mommy.
Maddie Cook, RN
I have been a Registered nurse for 18 months. I attended York university. I have worked in palliative care and acute surgical care as a nurse, during school I worked as a PSW in LTC and loved it. I had cancer as a young child and spent much of my youth going to check ups and spending time in hospital. My nurses were amazing and I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything but nursing.
The best thing about being a nurse is getting to work with likeminded, wonderful people and interactions with my patients.
My sister, my cousin Alan and my cousins wife Arla are all registered nurses as well.
