UBCO to offer Indigenous pathway for Master of Science in Nursing program


The University of British Columbia Okanagan will be offering an Indigenous pathway for its Master of Science in Nursing program in order to help advance reconciliation in health care. The program is designed for Indigenous registered nurses and registered nurses who work with Indigenous peoples, organizations, or communities. Students will have the choice of a thesis- or practicum-based experience and will receive mentorship from Elders, Knowledge Keepers, Healers and Indigenous community leaders throughout their studies. This program stems from a CIHR-funded collaborative initiative that also involves Thompson Rivers University, Trinity Western University, the University of Northern British Columbia, and the University of Victoria.
