The StFX Rankin School of Nursing recently held a curriculum retreat at Keppoch Mountain and they were honoured to collaborate and have their partners from the Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) facilitate the day. 

Along with faculty and staff from the Rankin School, in attendance were Cindy MacQuarrie, NSHA senior director of interprofessional practice and learning; Nancy McConnell Maxner, NSHA director; and Sherri Roach, NSHA provincial manager of student placements.

Rankin School assistant director Dr. Debbie Sheppard-LeMoine said the group spent the day examining steps for further evaluation and implementation of the School of Nursing curriculum. 

“It was significant to have our NSHA partners with us. They are very committed to supporting our program goals,” she says.

Added the NSHA partners: “We felt privileged to spend the day with our colleagues at StFX learning with, from and about each other and exploring ways to continue to enhance both learning and practice. We know that from the moment a nursing student begins their journey, educators and employers are partners in their preparation and transition to practice, so we need to move forward together.”
