Life of a Nurse

The Staff Nurse Interest Group is for you as you work and/or learn about nursing at point of care. We see staff nurses contributing a great deal to our honourable profession and we also acknowledge how the challenges faced.

We are fortunate to have dedicated volunteers who know and understand the strengths and challenges of staff nurses.

Reflections from a veteran nurse


Written by by Brenda Hutton RN

Greetings SNIG members,

I am Brenda Hutton, SNIG's communications ENO. I work as a casual staff nurse in a tertiary care psychiatric facility and work with clients with mental health problems including depression, suicidal tendencies, anxiety or debilitating psychosis. I know many of these patients well as they have frequent and long-term admissions.
