Name: 
Shelley Giebel

SANP Position:
Education Chair

Where are you working? 
Regina

What drew you into NP practice? 
Wanting to do more for the patients I care for.

Tell us about a project or community initiative that you are engaged or helping to develop as part of your NP role? 
I spent almost three years in a nephrology practice as a pilot project to show how NP's can be used in a specialty practice to improve patient care.

What would you like the public to know about NPs? 
We are independent practitioners who deliver safe, competent holistic care to our patients.

What type of clinical practice are you most passionate about? 
I would have a special interest in acute care if this was a possibility. In the community setting, caring for First Nations patients of all ages and patients with addictions would be my passion.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself. 
I LOVE hockey.

Why did you decide to join the SANP board? 
To try and advance the NP role, we are important members of the health care team and I would like to see our skills utilized more.
