Speaker: Crystal Bogue, CRN
Crystal has been working as a Critical Care nurse for over 7 years at Portage District General Hospital in Portage la Prairie, MB and for the last 4 of those years she has been the facility’s Critical Care Clinical Resource Nurse (CRN). She started her career in health care as an Emergency Medical Responder in 2005 and then began working as a Technical Clerical Support Worker with Diagnostic Services. These roles sparked her interest in a nursing career so she returned to school to pursue her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing at University of Manitoba. While attending nursing school, Crystal continued working part-time in Diagnostics Services and then as a Health Care Aide. Her professional journey and the various roles she has held over the years have allowed Crystal to experience healthcare from many perspectives and have given her valuable insight. Crystal grew up in Portage la Prairie and still lives in the area with her husband and 5-year-old daughter.
