Sanja Visekruna is a fifth year doctoral student at the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing. She obtained a Bachelor of Nursing Science in 2009 and a Master of Science (Nursing) in 2012 from Queen’s University.
Her nursing career has encompassed direct care roles in critical care and paediatrics (Type 1 diabetes self-management focus), and an indirect care role in nursing education policy. Sanja’s nursing research interest and passion are in the area of chronic disease self-management, specifically Type 1 diabetes. At the doctoral level, she plans to examine the financial factors related to Type 1 diabetes self-management as well as the organization and accessibility of existing self-management programs specific to this disease in Canada.
