Indigenous Nursing

The McMaster School of Nursing (SoN) is currently engaged in a strategic planning process in collaboration with both our internal and external collaborators towards enhancing and developing a responsive, supportive and innovative Indigenous health/education initiative.

It is expected that key elements of the SoN process will be consistent with the overall strategic work underway within the Faculty of Health Science. Community collaboration will be an important element of this work and more information regarding our community partners will be available on this site as the work unfolds.
