His experience in the simulation labs as a UWindsor nursing student helped Andrew Peltier land his dream job. Even before his June Convocation, the fourth-year student will take up a position in the emergency department of North York General Hospital.
He said the scenario-based job interview was not much different from what he did in the Faculty of Nursing labs.
University of Windsor president Alan Wildeman said his receipt of a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal is a tribute to cross-campus partnerships that serve the community.
Dr. Wildeman received the medal in a ceremony August 25 at the nomination of Windsor West MPP Teresa Piruzza, who cited his outstanding contributions to higher education and the economic development of the Windsor-Essex region. The Canadian government created the medal to mark significant achievements in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation.
