This event brought together over 60 key stakeholders in the Bachelor of Science (BScN) in Nursing (Collaborative) Program at Memorial to discuss the evolution of nursing education in Newfoundland and Labrador. The BScN program has over 900 full time nursing students, two partner sites, affiliations with four regional health authorities and linkages to the Council of Registered Nurses of NL (CRNNL). Representatives from Memorial, the Centre for Nursing Studies, Western Regional School of Nursing, Eastern Regional Health and Western Regional Health met to discuss the evolution of the BScN Program at Memorial. The event challenged attendees to examine issues and trends impacting nursing education; explore new strategies for nursing education; examine the philosophical underpinnings of the nursing program; develop capacity for creating new methods of clinical evaluation, and explore issues and trends in nursing education today. Guest speaker, Dr. Laurie Gottlieb helped participants to explore tools for supporting students in the clinical setting, including how to have healthy productive conversations. Participants also explored present and future prescriptive in clinical evaluation and examined new perspectives on licensing exams in Canada. Participants reported that the event helped to mobilize knowledge related to nursing education, explore strategies to support students, facilitated engagement with the stakeholders and enhanced capacity for teaching and learning in the BScN program.
