In honour of Nursing Week, de Souza Institute is taking the time out to recognize some accomplished nurses. Nurses like Wen Juan Huang, who is the 5th de Souza Designate by completing her de Souza Nurse Associate Designation.
What is unique about Wen, is her commitment to lifelong learning, beyond her own specialty of surgery. She expanded her knowledge base to include an in depth oncology training for better patient care. To earn the de Souza Nurse Associate designation, Wen has completed more than one hundred fifty hours of continuing education in oncology.
