Selkirk College Distinguished Alumna is Courageous and Compassionate Nurse

Selkirk College recently awarded family nurse practitioner Patrice Gordon with the Distinguished Alumna honour at the Graduation 2017 ceremony held at the Castlegar Campus. The earnest professional provides compassionate care to isolated First Nations communities in British Columbia’s Chilcotin region while responding to crises world-wide as part of the Canadian Red Cross Emergency Response Unit.

Selkirk College Gets Involved in Nelson Coldest Night of the Year

Selkirk College is working with Nelson CARES as they host the third-annual Coldest Night of the Year, a family-friendly walking fundraising event happening in communities across the country. On February 25, people will take to the streets of downtown Nelson to increase awareness about homelessness in the community and raise funds to help continue renovations at Ward Street Place.

Five outstanding Selkirk College faculty members have been recognized for their commitment to learning and exceptional performance in the classroom.

An evening to celebrate learning and the contributions to student success by Selkirk College faculty members was the focus of a wonderful night on the Castlegar Campus at the annual SCOPE Awards ceremony.

For third-year Selkirk College nursing student Chelsey McKellar, a practice experience on the streets of her own community provided an opportunity to recognize and appreciate a side of Nelson she’d never before seen.

Third-year nursing students at Selkirk College have a unique opportunity to develop their nursing skills and knowledge of the social factors that shape health on the streets of Nelson. They work with local agencies to help people in the community who may be dealing with issues of housing insecurity, addictions and untreated mental illness. It’s a different side of nursing, extending beyond the traditional model of treatment found in acute care, and for one student, it opened her eyes about little known aspects of her home town.
