Reeni Susan Rajan, M.Sc (Psych.) Nursing, RN
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.
WHY I BECAME A TEACHER?
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.
MY EXPERIENCE IN THE FIELD
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 I&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.
