Indigenous Health Practices

Learning activities around promoting Indigenous Peoples’ health are threaded throughout the BScN curriculum starting in Year 1.

Students in the TRU nursing program are also able to choose to work in practice placements with Indigenous individuals, groups, and communities. The majority of these practice opportunities are available in semesters six to eight. In addition, students will encounter clients who are of Indigenous heritage everywhere within the health care system.

Some of the many practice placements to choose from include:

  • Anahim Lake Nursing Station
  • First Nations Health Authority
  • Bella Coola Hospital
  • Esketemc Health Centre
  • Two Rivers Metis Society

  • Sexqeltqin Health Centre
