Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: Western Regional School of Nursing (WRSON) has been involved in the development and delivery of the Integrated Nursing Access Program (INAP) Option for Inuit Students from Labrador since 2002. This program option is six years in length and commenced in January, 2005. The first three years consist of eight modules that integrate adult basic education courses from the College of the North Atlantic and first year BN (Collaborative) courses from WRSON. The first four years of the INAP Option are taken off-site at College of the North Atlantic, Happy Valley-Goose Bay campus, near the students' home communities. The last two years of the option are to be completed on-site with the regular stream students at WRSON in Corner Brook, NL. The authors will provide an overview of the historical background and program development. They will outline the innovative and culturally sensitive nature of this program and discuss the successes and challenges to date.
