In October 2011, the Faculty of Nursing embarked on the beginning of the strategic plan process by engaging stakeholders, from across the health care community, in workshops, interviews and group consultations. Almost one year later, a final document was approved by the faculty’s Executive Committee. This document – the Faculty of Nursing Strategic Plan 2012 - 2016 – outlines ambitious initiatives for significant contributions to the University of Calgary’s Eyes High strategic direction and to firmly ground our faculty as a Canadian leader in nursing education and research.
