In October, 2014, Jan Rooks, a Langara School of Nursing graduate from 1996 was tragically killed in an avalanche in Nepal. Jan worked as a cardiology nurse clinician at BC Children’s Hospital. Our faculty and students worked with Jan on a regular basis during Langara clinical practice rotations at BCCH. Jan was collegial and supportive of faculty members and provided guidance and promoted critical thinking with our students. The pediatric nurse educators at Langara will miss her dedication to excellence in nursing education. Read her story online at
