2017/2018 Leadership Team
Rhea Van Raay
I am currently in my second year of the course-based Adult Focus Nurse Practitioner stream and excited to be part of the Mentor Us Leadership Team for 2016-2018. I was very fortunate to receive great mentorship when I first graduated and realize how much it helps in professional and social development. I have a background in critical care (PACU/ICU) and surgical nursing and could not tell you my preference. Outside of school you might find me running or travelling. I also recently began learning CrossFit and turns out I really enjoy it! I look forward to meeting you.
I am in the 2nd year of the PhD Bypass Program, in the leadership stream. I've worked research for a few years on projects related to leadership and older persons' care. My clinical background is in Emergency, Mental Health and Continuing Care settings. Being active in the graduate and academic community has created a great support system for me - I value positive relationships and making time for self-care!
Hi! I'm Alyson, and will be starting my first year of the PhD program as an MN by-pass student in September 2017. I am originally from Prince Edward Island, and graduated from the University of Prince Edward Island with my BScN in 2015. I started my career in maternal-child care, with a primary position in acute care pediatrics. After a little over a year of full-time nursing practice, I decided to come back to school as a Master of Nursing student here at the University of Alberta. I then made the decision to do the MN by-pass option, and am so excited to be starting my PhD! In addition to grad studies, I also work casually on the pediatric medicine units at the Stollery Children's Hospital here in Edmonton.
