Hello and welcome to the Practical Nursing Program. My name is Reeni Susan Rajan, Professor in the Practical Nursing Program. I have experience in both clinical aspects and in the teaching field.


I hail from a family of teaching and healthcare professionals and consequently I became ardently interested in pursuing a teaching career.  I have a keen interest in excellent leadership, public speaking and motivating students. I keep myself current in these areas of expertise by reading professional journals and work as a casual clinician in order to maintain clinical competence.


I am a Registered Nurse enrolled with the College of Nurses of Ontario, with degrees in Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Master of Science in Psychiatric Nursing from India. As a part of my Master’s education, I have done a quantitative research in the area of Geriatric Psychiatry. I have also completed two post-graduate certificate programs in Critical Care Nursing and Concurrent Disorders Program from Confederation College, Thunder Bay.


I commenced my tenure as: 

  • the Program Coordinator for B.Sc.(N) First year,
  • Senior Lecturer for M.Sc.(N) - Nursing Research; Nursing Education; and Nursing Administration,
  • Senior Lecturer for Post Basic(N) Program - Psychiatric Nursing
  • Clinical Instructor for B.Sc (N) Iyr, IIyr, IIIyr and IVyr - Fundamentals of Nursing;
  • Medical Surgical Nursing Iⅈ Psychiatric Nursing and Nursing Administration at Mercy College of Nursing, India.

After migrating to Canada, I worked as Student Lab Support Worker, Simulation Technologist and Sessional Professor for Critical Care Nursing at Confederation College, Thunder Bay.

Nothing pushes students to do their best work like a professor who takes pride not in his or her own accomplishments, but in helping others realize their potential. “ —Jason Dent, Philosophy, ’05

Likewise, my intention is to play the role of a mentor and facilitator, providing the support students need to meet the challenging academic demands and come out with flying colors.
