National Nursing Week 2022: Meet Derick Fauni

May 9, 2022

For National Nursing Week 2022, join us in celebrating Derick Fauni, nurse educator in HSC’s Renal Program

Derick Fauni, nurse educator in HSC’s Renal Program

Derick Fauni’s can-do attitude has paved the way for many opportunities in the nursing field. Fauni, a nurse for 14 years, began his nursing journey at HSC Winnipeg as a general duty nurse on HSC’s orthopedic surgery unit before transferring to the hemodialysis unit. There, Fauni began as a general duty nurse before becoming a charge (head) nurse; and now, Fauni leads the next generation of nurses as a nurse educator for the Renal Program. In this role, Fauni helps run the nine-week-long Manitoba Nephrology Nursing Course six times a year.

Fauni cites expanding this program and being a part of the opening of HSC’s new dialysis unit as a couple of the most rewarding moments in his career so far.

Learn more about Fauni’s multi-faceted career in the below video.
