PhD candidate, Nursing, University of Ottawa
As a registered nurse, I worked for almost four years in an emergency department in the province of Quebec (Canada). I am currently a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Ottawa in the nursing doctoral program. My doctoral research study focuses on the transition of caregivers in the context of a senior transfer from a nursing home (NH) to the emergency department (ED). This study will examine this transition process, the different needs of seniors and those of caregivers, and also the needs of both NH and ED nurses. Finally, I recently became an assistant professor in the Department of Nursing at the Université du Québec en Outaouais (UQO), which allows me to share my knowledge and the value of the nursing profession with the next generation of nurses.
