Caroline Park has been a nurse educator since 1971. She has taught RN, BN, MN and LPN students in Ontario, Manitoba and Alberta, as well as in the U.S. Currently a professor at Athabasca University, she has students across the country. Past students approach Caroline at virtually every nursing conference she attends. Teaching, research administration and community service in nursing have been Caroline’s life work. She has been on provincial boards, served as a resolutions chair of CNA (twice), and is past president of the Canadian Association for Nursing Research. Caroline loves attending the CNA biennial convention because it gives her inspiration, and she makes it a priority in her annual conference planning.
