Recognizing Catherine Moore for exceptional leadership in Nursing

May 18th, 2022

Catherine Moore has been working in Dawson’s Nursing Department since the fall of 1974. She has taught generations of students within the same family and seen others become colleagues. In light of National Nursing Week last week (May 9-15) and her upcoming retirement, Dawson would like to thank Catherine for her exceptional leadership and lifelong commitment to shaping Quebec’s future healthcare workers.

“Nursing is finally getting recognized for the valued profession it is," she said. "This is solely due to all the nurses, teachers and students who have worked tirelessly and selflessly during the pandemic.”

Each year, over 60 Dawson Nursing students graduate after completing over 1,000 hours of direct patient contact, providing them with the knowledge, skills, and aptitudes to provide excellent care.

"Nursing allows you to deal with all aspects of the person; physical; emotional; mental; spiritual. As you put the whole picture together, you become an excellent advocate for patients' needs," said Catherine. "Nothing is more satisfying than having a patient say 'Thank you for being my nurse today.'"

Jim Richards St. Pat 2015

Longtime Dawson employee, James Richards, has passed away

February 16th, 2022

James Richards, a familiar figure at Dawson for almost 20 years, died on Saturday, Feb. 12 at the age of 73. James began at Dawson as a security guard in 1994 before joining the staff of Plant and Facilities (now Facilities Management). He retired in 2013.

Apart from his good humour and helping hand in performing his duties, James was an outstanding Dawson volunteer. He spent many hours of his free time preparing and staffing Dawson’s often prize-winning St. Patrick’s Day float for 15 years. And every December for too many years to count, he could be found behind the bar serving drinks with a wink and a joke at Dawson’s holiday parties.

James is survived by his partner Yvonne, his daughter Tara (Chris), grandchildren Dalia and Domenic, and his stepdaughter Vanessa.
