CNA Board Member 2018-2020
Christina Sim’s 20-year nursing career includes work in long-term care, critical care, maternal-child health, flight nursing, community health and outreach street nursing. The incredibly enriching experience of nursing in the North led her to make the Yukon her home for the past 15 years. In her work over the past decade for the Kwanlin Dün First Nation, she was instrumental in developing the street nurse outreach program and sexualized assault care program in Whitehorse.
Christina is frequently asked to speak about First Nations health issues and the successful collaborative care model integrated into all Kwanlin Dün Natshèki Kų Health Centre services. Teaching is also a passion. She has been an instructor in the early learning and child care program at Yukon College for seven years.
Christina sits on two intergovernmental advisory committees for the health and social care of vulnerable populations and sexualized assault response services. In 2015, she was named the Minister of Justice Community Safety Awards’ Outstanding Volunteer, for creating the “safe rides” program and for her advocacy work with street-involved populations. She is the past president of the Yukon Registered Nurses Association.
