Building Partnerships in Nursing Education: An Employer Forum

February 2, 2017

Employer Forum 2

The Nursing Department hosted an Employer Forum on Friday, January 27th.

The success of Red River College BN Program graduates in the workplace is one of our main program outcomes and a key focus of the RRC strategic plan to “cultivate strategic partnerships”. Input from employers is also an important and very necessary component of measuring program effectiveness, according to the CRNM standards for Nursing Education Programs.

The event provided an opportunity for the RRC Nursing department to meet with the managers and/or educators from facilities that provide space for our RRC nursing students to do their clinical experiences, as well as may hire our graduates.

The feedback from employers was overwhelmingly positive. Thank you to everyone who attended, as we continue to work together to provide quality nursing education that meets the needs of Manitoba health care.
