NSCC to launch practical nursing student Mi’kmaw cohort

Nova Scotia Community College has announced that it will be launching a new practical nursing student Mi’kmaw cohort at its Pictou campus. The cohort will have space for 30 L’nu learners, who will use a custom curriculum that is developed using a Mi’kmaq and Indigenous lens with input from Mi’kmaw Kina’matenewey; Tajikeimik; the Dalhousie Indigenous healthcare in nursing team; the Nova Scotia College of Nursing; and the NS departments of Advanced Education, Education and Early Childhood Development, and Health and Wellness. “The interest and commitment from so many within the Mi’kmaw community in support of this new section is a recipe for equitable success – both for the program and the individuals who apply,” said NSCC VP, Academic Jill Provoe.
