Jennifer Torres Velasquez

First Year Global Health Rep

Upon completing my Bachelor of Medical Sciences at Brock University, I decided to pursue a career in nursing. Nursing school has taught me the importance of advocating, educating, providing care, and supporting our patients as nurses. As I continue on this journey, I have decided to go into each clinical placement with an open mind to discover what area of nursing I am most passionate about pursuing.
