Our recipients, Alberta’s Licensed Practical Nurses, are very grateful for the doors opened to them through continuing education supported by the Education Grant Program.
Here are some of their stories:
Achieving Cancer Coach Certification
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Fredrickson-McGregor Education Foundation for the educational grant that was awarded to me.
This grant made it possible for me to achieve Level I and Level II Cancer Coach Certification. This unique certification allows me to offer a specialized service to Albertans who are diagnosed with cancer. The goal is to maximize the therapeutic outcomes of treatment where a patient can benefit from our unique knowledge and experience in cancer care and recovery.
The Fredrickson-McGregor Education Foundation Grant is one I would highly recommend applying for. The process is seamless with timely responses. I encourage all of my colleagues to further their education and competencies in their careers with the assistance of the Fredrickson-McGregor Education Foundation. – Tracy Stephens, LPN
Recommending Grant Program to other LPNs
I would like to thank the Fredrickson-McGregor Education Foundation to help us, LPNs, to achieve our goals through continuing education and would definitely recommend the (Education Grant Program) to my co-workers.
The IV Certification and Phlebotomy workshop has helped me to be more confident and comfortable in doing IV starts and the Electrocardiography Workshop taught me how to record the electrocardiogram, how to describe and diagram the events in the normal cardiac cycle, and understanding artifacts. – Avinash Jared, LPN
