Colleen Breen — Past President- Nursing (Diploma) '80

Colleen has been a nurse in the Pediatric Critical Care in the Children's Hospital in London and a part-time nursing teacher at Fanshawe. Her career milestones, the development of a community critical incident stress management team, creating a successful proposal for paediatric palliative care development at Children's Hospital and advocacy for children with special needs, were inspired by her Fanshawe mentors. She shared these developments in Canada and the U.S. through creative presentations. In 2007, she received the Distinguished Alumni Award, Health Sciences. As a board member, Colleen hopes to “make connections with students and alumni in an effort to support, encourage, and inspire. Although Colleen is completing her Master of Science in Nursing at York University, she is truly “Fanshawe Forever.”
