Pursuing a career in nursing, high school student Sidney Stock has recently been accepted into the Registered Nursing Program at Medicine Hat College. Sidney has always had a desire to be helpful and be the person that others can rely on when needed. Her passion for caregiving stems from her personal life. Growing up with a younger brother who has Cystic Fibrosis has given her firsthand knowledge of the importance of nursing. Through a work experience and career class she has been given the opportunity to shadow Special Care Aides, LPN’s, and Registered Nurses at the Palliser Regional Care Centre. This opportunity has further inspired her to pursue her dream. Academically strong, Sidney has been on the honour roll all through high school, but she also has a keen understanding of what it means to be a leader. She has been an active member of Hazlet School’s Student Representative Council since Grade 6. Through her work and volunteer opportunities she believes that a smaller setting will give her the wide variety of medical experiences she seeks. With this in mind, it is Sidney’s goal to complete her degree and come back to Southwest Saskatchewan to work in a rural community.
