PRIYANKA JANI | Level 4 McMaster Site

Why did you decide to join MUNSS?

I have no idea. One day in the midst of the tragedy that was first year I saw the application form, sent in my application, and the rest is history!

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

My favourite activity that I am looking forward to as Vice-President this year is putting together MUNSS Week! It should be a great week filled with lots of treats, opportunities, and appreciation for our nursing peers. Other than that, I aim to be a support for my nursing family whether it be academically, emotionally, or socially. We are a truly close knit faculty and in that spirit, feel free to reach out to me wherever and whenever if you should need anything!

What advice do you have for your fellow nursing students?

Take time for yourself. As someone who has struggled with mental health and the impossible school-work-life balance, your mental and physical health are more important than anything. It’s great to get involved and join clubs and study hard (I recommend all of those!) but make sure you are practicing self care, whether that be getting 8 hours of sleep, going to the gym, practicing mindfulness, or doing some skincare. Nurses need to take care of themselves before they take care of others!

 How do you take your coffee?

I don’t drink coffee, but I take my tea black unless it’s fruity (then it’s gotta have a splash of milk)

KRISTA TSE | Level 2 Mohawk Site

Why did you decide to join MUNSS?

I chose to join MUNSS because being a level 1 rep last year made me realize how much I love to help other nursing students find ways to succeed within the program. MUNSS has allowed me to advocate for other students and to organize activities that allow students of all sites to bond with each other.

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

I’ve visited an alpaca farm once and they’re the cutest animal on this planet!

MEGAN SIMPSON | Level 4 Conestoga Site

Why did you decide to join MUNSS?

I have a passion for improving the student experience. My goal has largely been to advocate for the student voice and provide educational opportunities for students to seek growth form.

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

Running more naloxone training and planning an exciting MUNSS day for the student body!

What advice do you have for your fellow nursing students?

Don’t forget to take time for yourself and connect with those around you to keep you grounded.
