Welcome to the College of Nursing Southern Saskatchewan Regina Campus, one of the University's six provincial College of Nursing sites. We host 115 of the University of Saskatchewan's 345 undergraduate provincial nursing seats. At our campus, students learn interactively through easy accessibility to our professors and state of the art video and web-conferencing technology connecting nursing students and academic health science colleges across the province. In addition, the campus hosts numerous student break-out rooms, staff and faculty offices, boardrooms, a clinical practice simulation lab, an aboriginal centre, a beautiful student learning commons and a study mezzanine for Nurse Practitioner, Master of Nursing and Doctoral graduate students. I also invite you to review our international clinical opportunities explained under the International Study Abroad section of our College website.

As the Associate Dean of the Southern Saskatchewan Campus and Advancement of Global Health Strategies, I am responsible for the College of Nursing International clinical experiences. In this role, I promote connection of provincial and international clinical and research initiatives to promote cultural competency among students, faculty and staff. Specifically, the College of Nursing and University of Saskatchewan are working together with local and global community partners to address issues of equity and social justice and to include indigenous knowledge and experience in our classes and practice.

My prior administrative and care roles within rural communities and long term care settings include program development and evaluation, interdisciplinary team facilitation, quality improvement and regionalized health system accreditation. My Master of Nursing was completed at the University of Saskatchewan College of Nursing and I completed my doctoral studies at the Arthur Labatt Family School of Nursing at Western in London, Ontario.

I am experienced in both quantitative and qualitative research methods and have applied my research approach through post positivist, interpretive and critical research paradigms. I have coordinated a professional nursing association Canadian community health interprofessional survey, analysed Statistics Canada Population Health Databases and conducted a Cochrane Review with an interdisciplinary research team. I am currently developing social interaction knowledge translation interventions to foster evidence-informed health promotion and chronic disease management practice and policy within the fields of aging, client and family-centred care and global health. My teaching roles have focused on Community Health, Professional Nursing Practice Issues and Research at the undergraduate level, as well as Research Methods in the Master of Nursing Program.

I welcome any inquiries or interests you may have regarding my role as Associate Dean or my areas of research. If you have any questions regarding the University of Saskatchewan Regina Campus or one of our programs offered at this site, please contact 306.337.3800.
