Hello family & friends! As you may know, I am currently coming to the end of my third year in the McMaster Bachelor of Science Nursing program with only one year to go! I'm not sure where I'm going to make my mark as a nurse yet, but I am on the road to become a Nurse Practitioner and am very passionate about improving health in the north. I have been nominated to participate in an International Scholar Laureate Delegation on Nursing in Australia where I will visit medical centre's & universities to learn about health and Australia's model health care system. I am particularly interested in gaining knowledge about Australia's indigenous populations, which is one of the oldest in the world and extremely similar to that of Canada. I am hoping that the knowledge and understanding gained from this experience will be useful in helping to improve health care in Northern Ontario where it is desperately needed. So why the page?
Just like any education it comes at a cost, tuition for the program is $3,399, and the cost of the round trip flight will is $1,789 - while I have two extremely supportive parents, this cost is a large burden and ANY help that you can offer is so greatly appreciated! To earn your support I am attempting to cover as much distance as possible swimming laps over the next two months! My first idea was to set my goal at 8,403 miles, which is the distance as the crow flies from Canada to the land down under; but I will likely reach a couple hundred kilometres if I am determined and hope someone "gives me a lift" the rest of the way. haha.
I will be tracking my distance here online after each swim with affirmation from the lifeguards & one of my nursing tutors to ensure my accountability along the way. Feel free to pledge per km (40 laps x 25m) or simply pledge a specific amount - every contribution helps, no matter how small!
