Abstract:
The G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education and the School of Nursing at Ryerson University collaborated with the School of Nursing at the University of the West Indies to develop a model of distance delivery that has allowed for the Post-RN degree to be offered to nurses in the Caribbean. The main goals are to decrease the migration of nurses to other countries for furthering their education, decrease the nursing shortage in the Caribbean and build a system that supports the sustainability of the program. The educational experiences, alliances and resources developed through this partnership will be supportive of future educational endeavours within nursing and other disciplines in each organization. The collaboration will also combat the high cost of learning and increase accessibility to education. This model eliminates the need for nurses to leave their region to upgrade their credentials. It will also contribute to producing nurses who can provide leadership and mentorship in the nursing community and improve the quality of nursing care. Currently 67 students are enrolled in Jamaica, St. Lucia and Belize with a projected increase in enrollment per year in these and other locations throughout the West Indies.
