2020 Exceptional Alumnus Award
Cathy Le, BN’15
Nominated by Carla Ferreira
When UCalgary Nursing instructor Carla Ferreira first met Cathy Le in 2017, she was Alberta’s first Primary Care Navigation Nurse hired. Since then, Ferreira says Le continues to push the boundaries of nursing.
Cathy’s contributions to the faculty include a shadowing experience for eight Term 4 students, offering them a chance to witness how registered nurses take action on the social determinants of health, an experience Ferreira says can potentially impact their professional identity formation at this point in their program.
Cathy is currently completing her Master’s in Health Administration and continues to volunteer on the University of Calgary Nursing Alumni Committee and as a mentor in the faculty’s online NurseMentor program.
