Ryley Siscoe, BN Student

Public Relations

Ryley Siscoe is a third year Bachelor of Nursing Student from the Centre for Nursing Studies in Newfoundland and Labrador. I’ve lived in various parts of Canada and abroad while teaching English in South Korea. I have a Master of Arts in Political Science and am keenly interested in Healthcare policy, knowledge translation, and innovation, as well as understanding the barriers that marginalized groups face when attempting to access the Canadian healthcare system. I’m very excited about joining the Canadian Family Practice Nurses Association (CFPNA). I’m hoping I will be able to bring some unique perspectives that will be of value to our members. I am also truly looking forward to engaging and learning from the dedicated professionals that make up the CFPNA.
