The Nursing Department held our annual Curriculum Day on June 5th. The day included discussions, activities, and networking opportunities. Faculty reflected on what we’re doing, where we’re going, and how we can continue to improve our curriculum for our students.
A wide range of topics were discussed, including indigenous culture, wound care, and the health impact of pornography. The presentations were interesting and thought provoking. For some faculty, the presentations built on prior knowledge, while other faculty were introduced to important new concepts.
Curriculum Day offers the Nursing department an opportunity to connect, as we see the way our individual courses intersect and build on each other within the larger programs we teach in. The day also provides an avenue for theory and clinical instructors to meet, discuss, and discover the important connections between theory and practice. Curriculum Day is an integral staff development opportunity that benefits not only Nursing faculty, but our students as well.
