Get to know Registered Practical Nurse, Jackie A. Westrik, who serves patients in Ontario, Canada.


New York City, May 22, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - Specializing in geriatrics, Jackie is a registered practical nurse who has more than three decades of experience working at Hillsdale Estates, a nursing home located in Ontario, Canada. 

Hillsdale Estate's goal is to provide dignified and excellent care in a home-like environment that enables all people to live full lives. The staff of professionals working there is committed to those they serve through understanding their needs, providing safe and supportive environments, working on improvement initiatives, offering an informed and collaborative decision process, and achieving their desired outcomes through clear communication.

In regards to her educational background, Jackie earned her nursing degree from Durham College in Oshawa, graduating with honors in 1988. Thereafter, she attained membership status with the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO), the governing body for registered nurses in Ontario.

A registered practical nurse (RPN) is a healthcare professional who combines nursing skills, knowledge, and judgment to provide nursing care in various sectors of healthcare. The autonomy of the RPN is influenced by the complexity of the client's condition. RPNs have greater autonomy when caring for a client with less-complex conditions. As client complexity increases, there is a corresponding increase in the need for RPNs to consult with RNs.

In Ontario, RPNs are community college graduates. After graduation, they write a national certification examination. Once they successfully complete this exam, they are registered to practice as a nurse by the CNO. All nurses must renew their CNO registration annually, maintaining up-to-date skills and knowledge of current practices to preserve their professional standing. 

On the subject of her community involvement, Jackie is a Red Cross volunteer. Outside of work, she enjoys gardening and swimming.

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin engineered a surprise shakeup of Russia's leadership Wednesday, proposing changes to the constitution that could keep him in power well past the end of his term in 2024.

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Jun 5, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Jun 5, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Jun 5, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns. Relatively...
