Education Chairpersons

SARAH HOMSI | Education Chairperson of McMaster
Level IV BScN |McMaster Site

Why did you decide to join MUNSS?

I decided to join MUNSS because as I enter my final year of McMaster’s Collaborative Nursing Program, I wanted to find ways to continue to connect with other nursing students and find ways to support one another as much as possible.

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

My goals this year regarding my MUNSS role are to broaden what nursing students view as educational oppourtunities by introducing events that will diversify out skills beyond a clinical setting and llow us to engage more with the Hamilton community and beyond. I also look forward to working alongside the Education Team across all sites and cohorts to advocate for our program!

How do you take your coffee?

I’d love a tall iced caramel macchiato, light on the ice 🙂

HAYLEY GIROUX | Education Chairperson of Conestoga
Level II BScN | Conestoga Site

Why did you decide to join MUNSS?

I joined MUNSS because I believe in standing up for equity in the program, and because I believe that university is more than just going to classes.

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

Education is so important and I really wanted to be involved providing fun, educational experiences outside of class. My goal for this year is to help plan something fun that students can enjoy in this virtual, disconnected world we currently live in.

What advice do you have for your fellow nursing students?

I would advise my fellow nursing students to remember to put everything into perspective. This is a challenging program, and it doesn’t matter how you get to the end. Whether that be taking an extra year to focus on a challenging course or being okay with a grade that isn’t as high as you wanted, we will all graduate with the same degree and it truly doesn’t matter how you get there. Do your best, do what’s best for you, and be the best nurse you can be.

Fun Fact?

My favourite hobby is going hiking with my dog, Winston!
