Krista Sferrazza, Alumni Profile
Oct 10, 2018
More than 4,000 students have graduated from McMaster's nursing programs. Here we meet Krista Sferrazza.
Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree - Mohawk Site. I graduated from McMaster University with my BScN in 2016.
I am currently a Masters of Science in Nursing student at the University of British Columbia.
How I got here:
Throughout my undergraduate experience I always loved being involved in nursing student life. After my second year, I had the privilege of being a Student Assistant in the Office of Admissions. In my third year, I began my involvement in MUNSS, eventually becoming President of the society in my fourth year. By being involved in student life, volunteering at the hospital and my academic success thanks to the support of the awesome professors, I was able to make great connections and have amazing nursing mentors who recommended that I continue my nursing education at the graduate level. Prior to pursuing graduate studies, I began working at McMaster Children's Hospital on the Pediatric Medicine Ward. I learned so much in the two years I worked there, and it provided me with a great foundation to begin my nursing career. I also had the pleasure and privilege of volunteering in Kenya, Africa with Canadian Nurses for Africa. This two-week nursing mission really opened my eyes to nursing globally and the social and economic disparities in third world countries. After two years of bedside experience, I applied to the University of British Columbia and received acceptance a few months later. I am now in my first semester of graduate school and I am loving it.
