Bachelor of Nursing Pinning Ceremony!

September 13, 2018

Congratulations to all our graduates! We wish each and every one of you the very best in your new beginnings and wherever your path may take you!

Congratulations to Natasha Kuchta, who was our recipient of the ARNM Gold Medal Award for highest academic and clinical achievement!

Our Pinning Ceremony has great meaning; the pins mark transition from education and preparation into the profession of Nursing, which is a hard but rewarding profession to be in.

Last night was full of encouragement of how you are not a good nurse because you gave your pills on time but because you took the time to acknowledge people as humans and not a number.  It’s the little things that make the best nurses.

Thank you to all the supporters (families and friends, pets, coffee or wine) that helped our students through the rough patches and to the staff for being who you are and organizing a lovely Pinning Ceremony

Teaching Excellence Day

June 9, 2016

Stars

The Nursing faculty had a great day exploring the world of simulation, hosted at CanadInn Polo Park.

Scenario Stars

The day was filled with many interesting presentations, starting with our guest speaker Patricia Morgan; RN, MSN, Director of the Clinical Simulation Center from the University of Calgary, who spoke of the simulation process including the pre-briefing, simulation scenarios, and debriefing.

Then we were put to the test and had to go through the process of a scenario simulation and debriefing hosted by STARS Brent Bekaris, Mobile Education Leader, featuring our very own Patti simulator.

inside Stars Bus

The day ended with a round robin to explore our own Patti Sim mannequin to see what she can actually do, as well as the STARS Mobile Education Bus, a Paramedicine Moulage station, and Patti’s extended family SimKid and SimBaby.

RED day

May 19, 2016

skillsskillsHope everyone enjoyed RRC’s first RED day!  It was a great day spent with fellow co-workers as we met many others from NDC and our other campuses too, such as downtown and the rural sites.  As a large corporation,  it’s hard to get everyone together to enjoy a day together as one. Friday was a great success on that!

Cheers and a big THANK YOU to those who made the breakfast.  THANK YOU to the many people who put on the presentations and the staff that organized everything and cleaned up afterwards!  Job well done!

Even though the weather didn’t co-operate, the food trucks were a great treat too!

If many felt like I did when I left Friday, they felt very warm inside and thankful for a day to put the pencils down and computers away for a bit and reflect on us and how we can make a better work place environment and home life, whether it is simply by sharing the words “Thank you” or a simple action of kindness or realizing that laughter is the best form of medicine for everyone.  So next time you see someone having a hard day, laugh and you’ll see how contagious it really is!

Thank you to everyone who attended and hope to see everyone again next year!
