2013 Valedictorian Lea Mae Lico, RPN, IEN from the Philippines

During my first few months here it was a tough road; we have to step outside our comfort zone to survive. Thank God I met CARE Centre. CARE gave me ample information, not only related to the licensure process, but also continuing education, financial supports and specialized language and communication and nursing courses. Now I am working at Scarborough Hospital as a cardiology nurse, and also at Bridgepoint Active Health as a medical activation nurse. I encourage all internationally educated nurses to continue to fight for your dreams and never lose hope. To CARE, thank you for continuing to care for all of us. I look forward to participating in future networking and professional development opportunities!
