Moira Bazin

Prior to joining the Faculty of Nursing in 2000, I began my career in acute care working in areas such as cardiovascular and orthopedic surgery. I then moved in community nursing, working as a home care coordinator supporting clients in the home setting. As many of my clients were older adults, I became interested in older adult care and pursued further studies in this area.

I completed a Certificate in Gerontology from the University of Alberta, and a Master's in Nursing with a thesis topic on caregiving and the placement of a family member with Alzheimer's disease into long term care. In addition to older adult care and community health, I have a keen interest in interprofessional team development, and was the INT D 410 course coordinator for several years prior to joining the Faculty of Nursing. For the past eight years, my focus has been teaching foundational lab courses in the Nursing Simulation Center and a community course with a focus on the older adult (Nursing 304). In teaching students, I feel very honoured and privileged to be with them in their nursing education journal, and hope that I instill a passion for nursing that will continue to grow throughout their careers.
