Bachelor of Nursing Science
My first experience was a result of my work at the Queen’s Joanna Briggs Collaboration. I researched the various practices that frontline healthcare practitioners implemented. This birds-eye-view of the field allowed me the opportunity to recognize the significant role played by public health specialists in prevention and the efficient allocation of the healthcare system’s extremely limited resources. Having seen both the research aspect of healthcare and the frontline, I feel that public health best addresses the issue of knowledge translation into practice as health promotion provides the opportunity to create a link between the two.
I also had the opportunity to work at the KFL&A Public Health agency. I completed various projects in promoting healthy lifestyles in children and adolescents at school.
My experiences in health promotion also include the different sectors of the Queen’s School of Business, Queen’s Campus Observation Room, Community Living of Kingston, and Autism Ontario.
