Abstract:
The nursing workforce in British Columbia is addressing the nursing shortage by building education capacity and career mobility in health care workplaces and schools of nursing. An innovative partnership between Vancouver Coastal Health Authority, Fraser Health Authority, the Nurses Bargaining Association, UBC School of Nursing, and UVIC School of Nursing has created an educator career pathway curriculum based on the philosophy of continuous professional development for educators and enhancement of practice environments through four levels of competency development for preceptors, mentors, and educators. The overarching goal of the project is the creation of a redesigned educator role that will support translation of knowledge across health and education sectors, and transition of learners into a practice environment. The pathway will prepare education leaders with the capacity to move seamlessly between health authorities and nursing education programs, and foster effective learning environments for students and new nurses as they transition into the practice environment. This presentation will outline the educator pathway and focus on curriculum development at all levels of competency. In particular, the education focus at the Master's level within UBC School of Nursing and UVIC School of Nursing will be highlighted.
