New faculty of nursing rep elected

By Amy Badry

Kristie Joa was elected the new faculty of nursing representative on Oct. 27, beating Riley Simister with 62 per cent of the vote. Joa has already jumped into her duties as representative and is working on getting cheaper parking for nursing students during clinical placements. “We have to pay $13 a day to park, which is really expensive for students. I am seeing if we can get some kind of student discount.” Joa said connecting with peers on an individual level helped her win the election. “I wasn’t big on going into the classrooms, because I find people don’t pay attention. So instead I was talking to people individually. You get a better connection and people see you for who you are. That is what really helped the most.”
