Favourite Quote / Advice to live by: “Don’t go through life, grow through life.” – Eric Butterworth

Born in Three Hills, Alberta (and, yes, there are actually three small hills close by), Diane Betman, clinical practice educator, has also lived in Nova Scotia, Brazil and B.C. In fact, she can speak Portuguese fluently as she lived in Brazil for 14 years.

A friendly, positive person, when Diane reflects on her choices, she believes no other career would have given her more satisfaction than nursing. 

“Being a nurse has given me the opportunity to meet so many different people and learn from them while supporting their health journey. I am always learning something new and, as a clinical practice educator, I get to share these learnings with other staff. I hope that at the end of the day I have been a positive influence in the lives of others.”
