Hello, my name is Sarah Elizabeth Chisholm. I joined the Camosun College team in 2012 as an instructor for the Health Care Assistant Program. My role involves teaching students in both classroom and clinical settings, course and curriculum development, class management as well as maintaining student engagement. I have also assisted with the Practical Nursing clinicals.
My educational background includes a Bachelor of Nursing with a Minor in International Studies with an Associates Diploma in Biology from the University of Northern British Columbia and Bachelor of Biology from St. Francis Xavier University.

Some of my activities and interests include training and competing in triathlon on the west coast while I used to play Rugby in Prince George and Victoria. In 2014 I was fortunate to travel and observe 3rd year RN students practicum in Namibia. During that time I visited numerous other places in Africa. My love for traveling has lead to many places such as Spain, Morocco, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Britain, France, the Netherlands, Croatia, and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
