Thanadoula - Nurse for the dying and afterlife
Departure Nurse Marion Willms has extensive experience as a registered nurse. For fifteen years she worked as RN in a variety of clinical settings (including acute care) and in the community. Prior going back to school and obtaining her RN, she has also been working as Registered Practical Nurse (RPN) for two years and as a Personal Support Worker (PSW) in long-term care for ten years. As a part of her career in nursing, Marion frequently had to care for patients in their last stages of life. Years of nursing experience had taught her to be comfortable with death and dying patients as they depart from this life.
As a nurse, Marion has discovered her passion for supporting individuals in dying well as a part of her clinical practise. The personal journey of discovering her passion for Marion started from grieving. After the death of her mother in 2010, Marion began asking questions of “how people die?” In attempt to find answers, she attended Orphan Wisdom school taught by Stephen Jenkinson for three years and completed the Contemplative End of Life course offered through the Institute for Traditional Medicine in Toronto in 2013-2014.
