BRITTANY BATES

Level IV BScN | Conestoga Site

Why did you decide to join MUNSS?

I really wanted to get involved and also find a way to give back to students. MUNSS has allowed me to work alongside other passionate nursing students to create opportunities to celebrate our McMaster nursing community!

What are some goals this year regarding your MUNSS role (i.e. plans, events, changes you want to make, etc.)?

– Host successful Chapter Meetings to engage with student from all three sites.
– Plan and execute a successful National Nursing Students Week that allows the students to celebrate all of the contributions they make to the nursing profession.
– Attend and represent our three sites at the CNSA National Conference in Montreal.
– Encourage students to get involved in CNSA both as general members, and by recruiting students who are interested in taking on a Delegate role on the MUNSS executive.

What advice do you have for your fellow nursing students?

The field of nursing opens the doors to so many opportunities, stay open minded as you may be surprised by where you find your passion!

Level III BScN
CNSA Official Delegate

Why did you decide to join MUNSS?

I wanted to be a part of making change in the nursing students community by advocating for my peers. I wanted to be able to help create a strong knit community among all nursing students!

What are some goals this year regarding your MUNSS role (i.e. plans, events, changes you want to make, etc.)?

A very successful National Nursing Students’ Week! Also starting to create change for some of the biggest problems that nursing students face by partnering with organizations like ONA and CNA!

What advice do you have for your fellow nursing students?

Nursing is a busy program. Remember breathe and take things one step at a time. Don’t be afraid to ask your profs and peers of questions as most are eager to help. You’ve got this. Don’t forget to have some fun too!
