Monique, Hemodialysis Nurse, Pine Falls Health Complex, Pine Falls, Manitoba

Monique has been a nurse since 2005.

I always wanted to work in the healthcare field. I like the learning aspect. I generally just like to help people. I worked as a rehab assistant before. The field we’re in, we get to know our patients and you do have a really interesting relationship. It’s kind of like your own dialysis family. We have an awesome group. You just trust each other.”

When it comes to challenges of rural nursing: “For us, the doctors are not as present, just the doctor-patient support. There is a lack of resources. Social work, doctors. If they have to go to the ER I’ve had to send them out.”
