Biography

Darci Wright has been a Registered Nurse (RN) with her BScN for 26 years. Darci obtained her Honours Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) degree from the University of Windsor in 1995. She worked for many years before returning to grad to school to complete her Master of Nursing from Charles Sturt University in Australia in 2018.

Darci started her career at Georgian in 2007 as part-time clinical faculty. She went on to work as a Lab Technologist in the Nursing Resource Centre at Georgian from 2012 to 2017, after which she moved into a full-time clinical placement staff role until December 2019. In January 2020, she was successful in becoming full-time faculty at the college, which she describes as her dream job. Her most recent role began in September 2021 as the Clinical Course Lead for all clinical courses within the BScN program.

Darci has always had a passion for teaching and learning, with a focus and expertise in clinical environments. She has an extensive clinical background working in areas like general surgery, cardiac and thoracic surgery, orthopedic surgery, diabetic education, occupational health and long-term care.

I absolutely love the profession of nursing and all that being a registered nurse entails. I feel blessed and fortunate for the opportunity to participate in the education of our future health-care heroes. My passion for teaching students has always been the driving factor in doing the best job I can do. I have many favorite things about teaching nursing students as it is such a rewarding job. If I have to discuss just one, it would be when my students truly have that moment in clinical with a patient that you know will change how they think, feel and react. We often refer to this as a light bulb moment; the moment in time when things fit together and theory collides with clinical practice. I receive many emails from past students related to passing their National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) and getting their first job. I feel such a sense of pride. It’s wonderful!
