Round Lake, Ontario

I have worked and lived in First Nations communities in Saskatchewan, Labrador and Ontario for 17 years. The wide range of skills needed in Community Health Nursing asks for your best. I gained great pleasure and intellectual stimulation when living within Cree and Dene cultures.
