TWU Nursing graduate Laura Gondos on why a career in healthcare is rewarding and full of possibilities
TWU graduate Laura Gondos (BSc Nursing, 2006) is currently a patient care coordinator at Ridge Meadows Hospital in Maple Ridge, B.C. She talks about her experience working as a nurse, ahead of Canada's National Nursing Week, May 10-16, 2021.
Excerpted from Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows News:
"Gondos took a year off after high school and then went to Trinity Western University where she did her Bachelor of Science and Nursing. When she graduated in 2006, she did her practicum at Peace Arch Hospital in a medicine unit, and upon graduation she went to the surgical unit at Richmond Hospital. In 2007 she completed her perianesthesia specialty, a three-month program for recovery room nurses to learn about different anesthetics and taking care of people after they’ve had their surgery, and transferred to Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre before moving to Ridge Meadows Hospital in 2013, where she started in the recovery room.
One of Gondos most difficult days at work was when she was taking care of a woman at Richmond Hospital who had given birth to a stillborn baby. As the woman was recovering from the C-Section, Gondos will always remember the hour she spent with her, holding her hand.
But the bad is always balanced with the good."
