WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
What makes you shine?
“To shine — to me — means having a positive attitude, staying true to your values and beliefs as a person, and finding what fulfills you and gives you purpose. What makes me shine is knowing I've found my purpose in life and I'm working in a career I love.”
Kim Veldman (BN ’14)
Second-year MSc student
As an undergraduate nursing student at uLethbridge, Kim excelled in the classroom and on the court (she made Pronghorn history as the all-time leading rebounder and second leading scorer). Off the court, she got hands-on experience working in rural hospitals during her practicum and gave back to her young basketball fans as a volunteer reading buddy.
Today, she’s a graduate student at uLethbridge working toward a new goal: inspiring the next generation of nurses. “The ability to help other students become great nurses is a dream of mine, and I would like to become a clinical instructor of nursing students.”
