2014 Valedictorian Astrid Metaute, RN, IEN from Columbia

For IENs, one of the biggest barriers we have when we come to Canada is obviously the language. I have been very lucky and blessed because I have been a member of CARE Centre since 2012. They gave me orientation and showed me different options and today I am part of the workforce in Ontario as a registered nurse. I want to continue growing as a professional and I know CARE Centre will be there again to support me to continue with my goals. Because their job is not done when IENs get their registration; they continue to support the IEN journey with more practice and growth. As nurses, I think it’s our responsibility to continue learning and to try to give our best to everybody.
