What do you love most about being a 'Nurse on Demand'?

One of the best things about being a nurse is the privilege of being with people in some of their most vulnerable times. I have been present at births and at deaths and each time, it has been a humbling privilege to share those moments with patients and their families. It is a privilege to hold the hand of a patient when they need it most.

What's your background?

I graduated in 2010. I have been a nurse for ten years now. Over the years I have gained experience in child and adolescent mental health, internal medicine, surgery, and emergency medicine.

Tell us a time that was extra special with a client?

In the homecare setting it is always lovely getting to know my clients on a more personal level. Often times they will share home videos and photo albums with me. I feel honored when patients share these things with me. Its very special. Its something I love most about my job.

If you weren’t nursing what would be doing?

I would probably be either a paramedic or physical therapist.

Driving around at the night time. Edmonton is not really as populated as other big cities such as Brampton, Surrey; so one can feel at peace while driving.

Tell us about yourself!

Well little about me … My African name is Nonhlanhla (Zulu meaning the lucky one), l honestly feel so lucky and blessed to be a nurse. Nursing and caring comes second nature to me and l feel most proud when l know l made a difference in someone’s life.

I have been an LPN for 11 years and graduated from Norquest College. At Norquest l spent a lot of time fundraising for women to have the opportunity to go back to tertiary studies in the 1000 women movement. I believe once you educate a woman you have educated a nation.

If you weren’t nursing what would you be doing?

If l had not gone into nursing l would have probably done law or social work because l am passionate about fighting against injustices. I am married with 4 children that challenge me everyday to do better.

What do you love most about being a 'Nurse on Demand'?

I absolutely love the fresh approach Nurses on Demand has brought to the care industry. I am excited to be part of this team and l look forward to growing and making a wonderful difference to each and every client we serve.
