Helen McCrae Award 2020 Recipient: Priscilla Chen, BCIT

Five years of volunteering at the Royal Columbian Hospital in the emergency department and intensive care unit has truly inspired me to become a nurse.

While studying to become a registered nurse, I have learned to advocate for patients and empower them to be active participants of their own care. I also learned to advocate for equity and justice for vulnerable populations and to collaborate interprofessionally and intersectorally to implement strategies in achieving equitable healthcare.
