Abstract:

The Indigenous peoples of northern Alberta possess considerable challenges to their health and wellbeing. Research has shown that one strategy to improve the health of this population demographic is to increase the number of Indigenous registered nurses. The literature outlines the health disadvantages of the Indigenous people, the benefit of an increase in Indigenous nurses and the strategies that can be used to entice nursing students to baccalaureate programs and retain them until graduation.  Using a phenomenological approach through interviews, the lived experience of Indigenous nursing students and graduates has been explored to reinforce existing literature based strategies and illuminate new strategies.  Using these literature and interview based strategies will increase the percentage of Indigenous nursing students registering and graduating from a baccalaureate nursing program. The common literature based strategies include: access to an Indigenous counselor and  Elder, navigation through financial assistance available to Indigenous students, help with time management, essay writing, and medication mathematics, identification of Indigenous role models within faculty, knowledgeable faculty in Indigenous ways of learning, more specific recruitment for nursing in high school
