Kareen D. Tacderas, RN, Humber River Hospital, IEN from the Philippines

With my whole life reduced to two suitcases, I came to Canada in 2012. Since then, CARE Centre has provided me with the proper training, job search and interview skills, professional networking opportunities, and instructions toward registration. I love how CARE specifically creates and customizes programs that cater to the unique needs of their IEN members. Because of their guidance, I was able to take on Toronto’s competitive job market and achieve my goals with flying colours. Shortly after graduating Summa cum Laude and Valedictorian of York University’s BScN for IENs Class of 2015, I was employed as a full-time ICU RN at North America’s first fully digital hospital, Humber River Hospital – Wilson site. An IEN could not ask for anything more! I thank CARE Centre for being part of my journey since day one. I hope they continue to support and inspire more nurses to reach for their dreams!
