Healthy communities start with healthy relationships
Nicole Walters Practical Skills Assistant - Medical Laboratory Assistant
Nicole developed her computer skills while working for a home design and development company. Wanting to work in the healthcare field, she discovered the Medical Laboratory Assistant program here at Camosun College in 2006 and has never looked back. Immediately after graduating from this program she went to work for VIHA, mainly at the Royal Jubilee Hospital where she now specializes in computer training for new staff and supporting staff through system upgrades and changes. She has been training students and new staff since her career as an MLA began and is now thrilled to begin the next phase in her teaching career here at Camosun as a Practical Skills Assistant. Her previous education includes a BA from Thompson Rivers University, where she majored in Psychology and English – which is likely where she learned not only to read, but to understand Shakespeare as well! She enjoys golfing and hiking with her husband, spring gardening, fog, rain (and all things Vancouver Islandish), and hoarding craft supplies that she knows will come in handy one day. Nicole believes in continuous learning though out life, the importance of teaching patient care and safety to students, being able to enjoy your work, to be proud of your accomplishments and spending time with her husband, family and spoiled cat.
