Tasneem's Career Journey at MGH
Tell us about yourself!
Hi, my name is Tasneem Master and I am a Registered Nurse (RN) in Respirolgy/ Prolonged-Ventilation Weaning Centre. I’ve been working at Michael Garron Hospital (MGH) for three years.
What motivated you to join MGH?
I know MGH from as far back as I can remember. Growing up in the neighboring community, I have come to this hospital numerous times growing up, from getting stitches for a busted lip, to getting treated for pneumonia. As scary as it was coming to the hospital as a child, I still remember feeling so safe and comforted here. Not only have I been here for myself, but I have been in and out of the hospital with many family members and friends. When I became a nurse, I knew I wanted to work somewhere I could serve what felt like MY community. Michael Garron Hospital felt like a place where I could help this community heal and strive.
What types of learning, mentorship or professional development opportunities have you had the opportunity to pursue since joining MGH?The teams here at MGH are always looking to help you in your development. My management team is always looking to share workshop and conference opportunities with us to help us be better at what we do. I truly feel like they want to help mentor and guide us in achieving our true potential.
Can you share your career path at MGH?2018: I was looking for a challenging role within the hospital and applied to work on the Respirology/Oncology/Prolonged-Ventilation Weaning Centre. I have been working here ever since and I feel such a sense of belonging and accomplishment. I aspire to achieve my Masters in Nursing and seeing where that takes me within MGH.
What motivates/inspires you?
My faith and family are the biggest motivators for me. I want to leave a positive mark with anyone I interact with. My faith teaches me that kindness and empathy are some of the most important qualities anyone can possess. My role at MGH allows me to spread that kindness and joy while helping people who are vulnerable.
My family is like my personal cheer squad. I love going home to them and seeing how proud they are of the work I do. On particularly challenging days, I can always rely on them to remind me why I do what I do, and the positive impact I’m having on peoples’ lives.
If you could share one memorable moment from your time at MGH, what stands out to you? What stands out to me are the amazing people who work here. My colleagues feel like family. No one here is ever alone. We work as a team. We are a group of knowledgeable, compassionate and hardworking people and that is really hard to find.
