Collaborative Indigenous Nursing and Wellness Master of Nursing (MN Indigenous Stream)
A collective group of Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Nursing Leaders are co-creating a distinct graduate nursing education stream that focuses on working with Indigenous Peoples with six post-secondary institutions in British Columbia. This is an exciting opportunity to join a collective of students, instructors, researchers, knowledge holders, Indigenous communities and nursing organizations in the co-creation of a unique and distinct learning experience. You will gain a deeper understanding of the complexities of Indigenous Health Nursing service delivery, healthcare, and the impacts of colonialism on Indigenous health, nursing programs and nursing practice.
Financial support has been made available for Indigenous student registrants though a CIHR-funded research grant for exploring the development and implementation of this stream. Students will be invited to participate in the research activities, but participation is completely voluntary.
Co-development of this new Indigenous Health Graduate Nursing Stream requires a phased in approach. The first phase, a Special Topics Seminar, will begin in September 2023. This seminar is intended for nurses who are just entering or who are considering applying for a graduate nursing program at one of the participating institutions (UVic, UBC-O, UBC-V, TRU, TWU and UNBC). Please check with your faculty advisor for more
information about registration for this seminar and this exciting opportunity to participate in the development of an Indigenous Health Nursing graduate nursing stream at your university.
