Level 1 Reps

JORDAN ANDERSON | McMaster Site

Why did you decide to join MUNSS?

 I decided to join MUNSS because I wanted to get involved in the nursing program and gain leadership experience that I can take forward with me. I also joined to help my peers and I feel included and important in the decisions made for the faculty of nursing, especially in a time where we are working remotely and social and academic assistance is more important than ever.

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

Some goals I have this year as a Level 1 Rep for the McMaster stream is to create socially distanced or online events to get first years involved and facilitate relationships that may not have been made due to distance. Academically, I would like to introduce workshops that can help teach study habits and tips from upper years or graduates from the nursing program to help ensure that everyone is successful even in their altered learning environments.

What advice do you have for your fellow nursing students?

Some advice I have for my fellow nursing students is to not compare yourself to your peers. I find it easy to get caught up in feeling like you aren’t understanding material fast enough, or are behind, but if you focus on what you need to do to be successful, you are much more likely to reach your goals.

Two Truths and a Lie:
-I was Mrs. Potts in Beauty and the Beast in high school
-My neighbour is the guitarist in the band the Arkells
-I have a dog named Suki
(The lie is the dog)

Why did you decide to join MUNSS?

I decided to join MUNSS as a way to meet new people and better involve myself in my program. I love working with others in teams and groups and felt I had a lot of leadership experience and great ideas I could bring to the table. I can’t wait for what this year has to offer!!

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

Some goals I have this year as a Level 1 Rep for the Conestoga stream is to create opportunities for my peers to communicate with one another and build relationships that otherwise would have been made had we been in person. I will do this through planning of online and socially distanced events that promote the involvement of first year nursing students looking to make those long lasting connections with others.

What advice do you have for your fellow nursing students?

Times are unpredictable right now and no one truly knows what’s going to happen next. My advice is to seize the moment and make every day count. I know that personally, the transition to online schooling has not been easy, and I’ve been having trouble finding time for myself. The best thing you can do is go outside and catch some fresh air: go for a walk, do a workout, catch up with friends. Do something that makes you happy each and every day!

A fun fact about yourself, or the craziest thing you’ve ever done!

I enjoy being active and playing sports; lacrosse in the summer and ringette in the winter.  In my spare time I hang out with friends and spend time with my family!
