The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta has released the fall version of their Care magazine. In it is a feature on Dave Dearden entitled: Changing Gears – from trucks to scrubs. (Scroll down to page 18).
I did both the words and the photos for this piece, and I immensely enjoyed the entire experience. Dave is a fascinating guy with a colourful story…he was thoughtful and analytical about his life choices.
Dave taught me that everybody has a story that needs to be told. I hope he is an inspiration to other LPNs out there. Being an LPN is one of the toughest jobs in the health sector, and they deserve to be celebrated. Thanks to Dave for his openness, colleague Tim for his sportsmanlike conduct, and my two models: Kaitlynn and Ella.
