  • “What inspires me most working in the Leukemia/Bone Marrow Transplant (L/BMT) Program Daycare is seeing how supportive patients are of others.  The unit layout allows patients to connect and encourage one another.  Similarly, long after treatments or passing of loved ones, clients return to let us know they're thinking of us. These gestures during their difficult times are gratifying, they’re reminders to keep going and do my best,” says Mona, Registered Nurse at Vancouver General Hospital.
What she enjoys most about her role in ambulatory care is the range of patient acuity and caring for patients through their entire cancer journey – from diagnosis to survivorship or end-of-life: “Fighting blood cancer is a long process and takes commitment, so you really build relationships and impact lives.”
Mona shared what motivated her to apply for this role: “I didn't start with a sure passion for L/BMT, but I had the chance to meet VCH leaders and ‘reverse-interview’ them about their departments.  Vacancies in L/BMT were rare and low turnover implied job-satisfaction to me, so I wasn't surprised the manager I met was open, supportive & flexible.  L/BMT captured my heart and when ready for change, I didn’t have to leave to grow professionally.  It's a large program with many settings to work in, so I easily transitioned to outpatients.”
Mona feels supported at work and has knowledgeable, experienced, caring staff to lean on: “I like how we're all different yet respect the strengths we each bring to our unit.” The unit even has their own nursing journal club: “We take turns facilitating discussion as a way of learning, understanding research, gaining leadership skills & improving workplace dynamics. It’s a new initiative for nurses and a fun get-together that boosts our unit morale!”
In her spare time, Mona enjoys the competition and camaraderie of team sports.  She skated on synchronized teams for most of her life, and she recently joined a soccer team for the first time: “I'm counting on my flexible schedule to get to practices and hoping turf is gentler than ice!”

  • #TBT to when @VCHCareers visited one of the most beautiful places on Earth - Bella Coola, BC. 
Filled with amazing natural beauty, #BellaCoola is a playground for the adventurous. Snow capped mountains, majestic grizzly bears, and world class fishing await the intrepid health care professional. 
500 km North of Vancouver (a relatively short flight), Bella Coola sits in a mountain valley at the end of a long and beautiful fjiord.
