OTTAWA, ON, June 20, 2022 – The Canadian Association of Institutions of Nursing (“CASN”) released a statement today introducing a new portal that would provide views from its member schools on current nursing education issues and opportunities throughout the country.
“CASN’s Quality Nursing Education National Insights Portal was recently launched, and we’re excited to share it with you (the “Portal”). Schools of nursing are battling to maintain high quality nursing education in the face of various difficulties on all fronts, following a two-year war with a worldwide pandemic that gravely impacted Canada’s already complicated health-care system. Through the gateway, we will bring to the public’s notice the difficulties that nursing schools are experiencing, as well as present our leaders with ideas to help nursing education create a sustainable nurse workforce in Canada “CASN’s Executive Director, Cynthia Baker, stated.
Representatives from CASN’s member schools of nursing assisted in the development of the Portal. It gives nursing faculty across Canada a way to share their knowledge and essential ideas as they react to the demand for additional nurses, and it provides national support to local efforts. Users are urged to reference or download content from the Portal that they find useful for advocacy in their local context on the following topics:
- There is a critical nursing shortage.
- Seats, sites, and programmes have all been expanded.
- In-Person Classes, Labs, and Clinical Placements are all part of Covid-19.
- Collaboration and Investment by the Government
