The Canadian Nursing Student’s Association Western Prairie Regional Conference will be held in beautiful Vancouver with the theme: Bridging the Gap: Nursing Vulnerable Populations. The goal of this conference is to challenge you, as future nursing leaders, to broaden your thinking, recognize the different social determinants of health at play with each population group, and hopefully be inspired to enact change in your respective communities.
The Association of Registered Nurses of BC (ARNBC), in partnership with the BC Coalition of Nursing Associations is pleased to announce that continuing education funds are now available for nurse practitioners who are registered to practice in British Columbia.
Funding has been provided by the BC Ministry of Health to support the ongoing education needs of nurse practitioners. These education funds consist of a one-time grant from the BC government to enable eligible BC nurse practitioners to complete education programs including local and distance courses and conferences; short term or long term programs; and group education sessions.
Every year, the Canadian Nurses Foundation gives out more than $275,000 in scholarships and bursaries to advance nursing practice and knowledge in Canada. Our scholarships are awarded based upon merit. We believe that supporting Canada’s best and brightest nurses will ultimately lead to superior patient outcomes and a stronger Canadian health care system. As Canada’s only national nursing foundation, we proudly accept applications from students across the country, in all regions of Canada.
