Nursing Continues Collaboration with the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario

The Nursing Program in the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions, signed an agreement with the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario (RNAO) to begin the process of incorporating RNAO best-practice guidelines (BPG) into the nursing curriculum as part of the Best Practices in Nursing Initiative of the Center for Public Health and Education Policy.

Nursing is completing its first year of candidacy to become an Academic Best Practice Spotlight Organization with the RNAO, the first in the United States. As part of this three-year process, the faculty hosted two Champions Workshops in April, 2012: one for nurses practicing in various acute care and other settings; and one for nurse educators who want to develop a process for incorporating evidence-based practice (in the form of BPG) into the curriculum.

The workshops were a huge success. Nursing faculty members, Anne Marie Buonocore, Susan H. Diehl, and Katharine K. Lewis contributed their experiences of incorporating the BPG into the curriculum at the faculty Champions Workshop. The Department plans to host similar events next year.
