Retired nurse Molly Smith Glaser shares her story and her path to nursing
2020 is the International Year of the Nurse and Mid-Wife. In celebration and recognition, we will feature stories all year long of nurses and midwives from across the province and the great work they do for BC First Nations people and communities.
Molly Smith Glaser is quick to correct me when I refer to her as the first Indigenous nurse in BC – “I was the second,” she tells me with a laugh, revealing her humble nature.
The truth is, Molly is an inspiration to many people, and not just those who first suggested she be interviewed as we honour nurses and midwives during the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife. From Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw Nation, and the Gwayasdums Community on Gilford Island, Molly’s desire to be a nurse became reality because of her incredible determination and resilience – she had to overcome and conquer many obstacles in her way.
