Future of Nursing: New Roles and Expectations

Undergraduate programs are charged with preparing nurses to work in the healthcare system in which they will enter practice.  This panel will explore current and expected changes to the Canadian healthcare system.  Topics to be explored are RN prescribing, Nurse Navigator Role and assisted death.

Truth and Reconciliation Report – What It Means to Nursing Curricula

In June 2015, the Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission released the much-anticipated final report and findings of their six-year long mission to understand the impact that the residential school system had on the children who attended these institutions.  Within the report, the Commission made a series of recommendations which pertain to the health of Canada’s Aboriginal populations.

Join us on Wednesday, November 16th to hear from faculty members across Canada on how to integrate the calls to action into undergraduate nursing education.
