Abstract:
Bridging practice and education. Announcing a national education strategy for nurses in First nations and Inuit Communities. The Office of Nursing Services has a developed a national education strategy aimed at recruitment and retention of nurses in First Nations and Inuit communities in Canada. The strategy has been accomplished through the Nursing Practice Education Committee with guidance from the National Leadership Committee. The national strategic plan focuses on meeting the needs identified through an environmental scan of nurses working in all FN & I communities with particular emphasis on the needs of nurses in remote and isolated communities. The aim of the strategy is to integrate new graduates into the practice milieu as well as support and mentor those nurses already practising in FN & I communities. The plan encompasses various education strategies to be undertaken for the next five years. This presentation will provide an overview of the national education strategy, discuss the use of technological and pedagogical innovations involved, and highlight approached to bridging practice and education.
