Rural and Remote Nursing
- Reflect on how rural nursing is different from nursing care provided in the city? What unique needs do these rural communities have?
- 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?
- What is your understanding of the rich history of indigenous, first nations, inuit, and métis people?
- What is the importance of smudging?
- What are the roles of the indigenous healers within the community?
- Would requiring this knowledge differ if you were a practicing nurse in an urban city’s ICU?
- Consider how rural hospitals/agencies can create safe and inclusive spaces for clients, staff, and nurses with diverse intersecting identities.
