Kim Frost, RN BScN MN CPN(c)

President

Prince George / University Hospital of Northern BC / Clinical Practice Lead

I have been in the OR for 12 years and love the dynamics and what perioperative nursing does for patient care. I hope that in this role I will increase OR nurses’ awareness to the value of sharing our practice through this province. In my spare time I love to go hiking, biking, and camping with friends and family.
