Emma Woodside

Emma has been involved in the nursing program throughout her time at Western.  She is a kind and caring student who is always willing to lend a hand to support a peer in need. Even when she experienced the loss of her roommate she would still support her peers in their grief by speaking at the memorial held at Western. She is an academic leader in her classes and always strives to do her best. She is a support for her peers personally and professionally through the advocacy work she did for the program during her time on the WFNSA. Often, the work that is done by her goes unrecognized by many of her peers, however, she deserves recognition for all that she has done to better herself, our program and her peers. She has left an impact on the Western nursing program that will outlast her time here at Western.

Fourth-year Nursing Student of the Month

Valentina Ovad

Third-year Nursing Student of the Month

Valentina moved across the country to be able to attend Western and since then, she has made a big difference in the school and the local community by consistently demonstrating small acts of kindness that make a real difference. She supports her classmates academically and emotionally.  Valentina provides classmates tutoring in the science courses free of charge. At placement, she takes initiative on things like fixing soap dispensers so that hand hygiene/patient safety is promoted and she consistently validates the patients’ and their family members’ feelings/experiences. She really focuses on practicing client and family-centered care.
