School of Nursing valedictorian Alexander Skipper graduates May 26 with a BSc in Nursing from the accelerated stream. We asked him a few questions to get to know him. Here’s what Skipper, who is going on to work in the ER at McMaster Children’s Hospital, had to say.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE MCMASTER?
When I was deciding on which school I wanted to study nursing at, McMaster was always my top choice. One of the biggest factors that pushed me towards McMaster was its reputation for ingenuity in health education and its curricular focus on holistic and patient-centered care. This is exemplified by the problem-based learning approach that McMaster employs, and regular integration of care-scenario based learning on the ways that nurses can help the person in their care.
Additionally, I have family and friends that are Mac nursing graduates, and they helped affirm that McMaster was the best choice for me. Coming up on the end of my degree here, I am so happy to have followed their advice!
