Year in Review 2020-21
Report to Community
This past year had been unprecedented in so many ways. Many of the long-held assumptions about work and learning have been challenged and/or debunked as a result of the pandemic. New ways of being and connecting have taken shape and we have embraced technology in ways that seemed unfathomable just a short time ago. In many ways technology has been a lifeline: for maintaining relationships; continuing to learn and grow; and for communicating the rapidly evolving evidence around COVID-19.
As Dean, I am so very proud of our students, staff and faculty for their many contributions to fighting this pandemic: our students participating in COVID-19 vaccination clinics and embracing new clinical learning opportunities; our staff who were dedicated to supporting our learners, educators and researchers in creative new ways; or our clinical, lab and theory nurse educators who, through nimbleness, ingenuity and sometimes sheer determination, ensured our students continued to learn and grow. Add in our researchers who saw the pandemic as the spark for asking compelling new questions and adapting ongoing research in ways that solve societal and clinical challenges heightened by the pandemic.
What is most striking to me over this past year is the impact that ALL nurses have on the health and wellbeing of our communities. Collectively, nurses have delivered a tour de force in health care. I hope you enjoy reading our 2020-2021 Report to Community and celebrating the achievements and contributions of our Faculty of Nursing. Onward.
