Did you know? CARD funding helped produce Journey North

March 5, 2018

With the April 4 College Applied Research Development Fund (CARD) application deadline fast approaching, we are happy to launch this “Did You Know” series to highlight some of the projects made possible with CARD support.
In collaboration with Red River College Faculty of Nursing and Health Canada, eTV produced Journey North: A Virtual Nursing Experience, which was made with CARD support.

This virtual community features an interactive tour of a Health Canada nursing station located on Bloodvein First Nation in northern Manitoba.

The nursing station consists of 17 exploratory rooms and points, 10 of which are 360° panorama rooms. Supplemented by videos, photos, audio, and a number of medical scenarios, Journey North allows Nursing students the opportunity to explore and learn about northern community health nursing, as well as Indigenous culture and traditions.

After a number of evaluation phases and an official demonstration meeting, Journey North received positive reviews from RRC students, staff, and faculty, as well as representatives from Health Canada.

It was presented at the Western & North-Western Region Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (WNRCASN) Conference, where it received similar positive feedback and many excited responses.

CARD is a College-wide program administered by the Research Partnerships & Innovation office.
