Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: A sudden policy shift in British Columbia post-secondary education in March 2004 altered the identities of two Schools of Nursing. These Schools of Nursing, situated in post-secondary institutions known at the time as Okanagan University College in Kelowna, and the University College of the Cariboo in Kamloops underwent dramatic transition in their new institutional contexts of the University of British Columbia, Okanagan and Thompson Rivers University, respectively. As academic leaders of the two Schools of Nursing, we confront daily a previously unimagined scope of organizational change and shift in the identities and roles of our institutions and faculties. Four years into this process, we reflect on how we framed our leadership challenges, lessons learned, and how we today understand the meaning of academic governance and transformation when context is determined by sweeping shifts in public policy. We take this opportunity to share insights into the most agonizing and purposeful dimensions of our leadership û facilitating shifts in the identities and roles of nursing faculty members, collective bargaining and valuing the diversity of the past while signalling the meaning of the future of nursing education in our new university contexts.
