Q&A with Nursing grad Tessa Whitehouse

Tessa Whitehouse

It’s National Nursing Week, a time to honour the contributions that nurses make to people, communities and health care. This year’s theme is Changing Lives, Shaping Tomorrow. We spoke to graduating Bachelor of Science in Nursing student Tessa Whitehouse (pictured above) about her experience at UVic and her work over the past two decades in geriatric care, primary care and at local non-profit agencies as a licensed practical nurse (LPN). Here, Whitehouse talks about what drew her to nursing, why she wants to become a Registered Nurse (RN) and where she sees her career going next.
