Advancement of Nursing Education

We are pursuing

National prominence for excellence in nursing education

Key areas of focus

  • Technology and teaching innovation 
  • Curriculum evaluation and evolution 
  • Leading faculty development for teaching excellence  

The Collaborative for Advancement of Nursing Education will engage faculty in scholarship and research that improves curriculum and teaching practices, facilitates creative innovation to integrate technology in teaching and learning, and prepares faculty to be the best teachers they can be.

With students at the centre of our teaching mission, we are committed to creating learning environments that foster discovery, creativity, clinical excellence and an appetite for lifelong learning.

Our scholarship and research will provide evidence-informed guidance for teaching, learning, curriculum development and evaluation. Ongoing inquiry among students, faculty, alumni and employers around excellence in nursing education and practice, and how to promote it are key commitments within this research priority.
