Making a Difference
Scholarship and Research in the School of Nursing at TRU, 2016-2021
The Thompson Rivers University School of Nursing embarked on a collaborative process to articulate a vision and mission, six strategic directions and four priority areas for scholarship and research for the next five years (2016-2021). This document presents key elements of the school’s plan, developed through wide consultation with faculty, students and members of the practice community.
This plan has roots in the School of Nursing’s legacy of scholarship, research and excellence in teaching nursing students. It builds on and extends relationships with practice and community partners. This plan for strategic action will inspire action, ongoing collaboration and efforts to make a positive difference in nursing practice and health outcomes in identified thematic areas of scholarship and research.
School of Nursing: Scholar Profiles
Journeys in Nursing Scholarship
The TRU School of Nursing Journeys in Nursing Scholarship Committee originated as part of the Scholarship Committee. Its purpose was to provide a forum for nursing faculty to present their current and future plans for a diverse range of scholarly work, including teaching, practice and research.
Journeys is an opportunity for faulty to connect with one another, to share ideas, plans, and activities that will foster a supportive community of scholars in the School of Nursing. Journeys continues as an annual event that is well received and celebrated within the school.
Faculty within the School of Nursing are actively involved in innovative scholarship and research activities. These fall within the research and scholarship themes of excellence in teaching and learning, leadership and policy, community health nursing and population health, and Indigenous health and pedagogy.
The following opportunities are available to support and engage in scholarship and research.
|TRU Teaching Practices Colloquium||Annual event in February|
|Journeys in Nursing Scholarship||Available every April|
|Lunch and Learn||Monthly opportunities to dialogue and share knowledge and experience|
