Shaunna Downey, BScN, RN, CPN(C)


Clinical Nurse Educator

Shaunna office

Hello! My name is Shaunna and I live and work on Vancouver Island. My passion is for education and advocacy. I love to help others build their perioperative skills using experiential learning approaches. I am a life-long learner and all around enthusiast for anything related to the surgical spectrum. During my time as President, my intention is to share knowledge in a way that better meets the needs of the modern nurse (BUSY!). As I look to expand my own learning and comfort zone with new social platforms and technology, I hope it inspires curiosity in others. Excellence, not perfection. I look forward to producing and sharing some great content with you over the next 2 years. 

Please reach out if you have an idea or topic you would like to know more about! 




Please reach out if you are interested in developing leadership experience!
