Rural and Remote Nursing

Case Study Part 1 Questions

  1. Reflect on how rural nursing is different from nursing care provided in the city? What unique needs do these rural communities have?
  2. What specific training or education do you anticipate requiring to practice within rural communities? Do you think this education should be part of all nursing education programs?
  3. What is your understanding of the rich history of indigenous, first nations, inuit, and métis people?
    1. What is the importance of smudging?
    2. What are the roles of the indigenous healers within the community?
    3. Would requiring this knowledge differ if you were a practicing nurse in an urban city’s ICU?
  4. Consider how rural hospitals/agencies can create safe and inclusive spaces for clients, staff, and nurses with diverse intersecting identities.
