Tania Dick hails from the Dzawada'enuxw First Nations of Kingcome Inlet and has been a Registered Nurse in British Columbia for 12 years. Her entire career has been spent in rural and remote nursing, specializing in Emergency and Aboriginal health. She attained her Master of Nursing degree in the Nurse Practitioner program at UBC in 2010. She currently works full time as a general duty nurse in her Father's rural village of Alert Bay, BC.

Tania has been an ARNBC board member for the last two years, representing the voice and issues of Aboriginal and front-line nurses as a Director-at-Large, and has played a key role in advancing the Association's work around Aboriginal Health Nursing. She also serves on the Board of Directors of the Aboriginal Nurses Association of Canada representing BC and Alberta, and is a member of CNA's Expert Committee on Aboriginal Health. Tania has served as a BCNU union steward, chair for an equity seeking caucus, and worked as a BCNU staff consultant in Aboriginal Health Policy. Recently, she was selected to participate in the prestigious Governor General's Canadian Leadership Conference.

Tania will utilize her strong networks, expertise, and vast experience to lead B.C.'s nursing family to influence policy into action. With strong ties to both the BCNU and ARNBC, Tania has been deeply troubled by the discord that exists within the B.C. nursing community and is committed to seeking positive solutions that support all nurses and groups to work collaboratively for the good of the profession. She believes that there is value in each of B.C.'s three nursing groups and that nursing and the public deserve as many voices as possible speaking out for good, sustainable, public healthcare.

Tania's goal is to empower nurses to use their voices, and work in a united way to benefit not only the nursing family, but also the health of all British Columbians. Tania is excited at the opportunity to be part of the ARNBC leadership team for the next four years, and to represent the voice of all nurses in advocating for change.

Tania is President Elect of the Association of Registered Nurses of BC and a representative to the BC Coalition of Nursing Associations.
