The Graduate Program in Nursing hosted visitors from Drexel University in Philadelphia in early May. It’s the fifth year for this annual visit.
The group included students enrolled in the Doctorate of Nursing Practice program at Drexel University and scholars such as Dr. Al Rundio, the Associate Dean, Nursing, Drexel University and Dr. Bill Lorman, Clinical Assistant Professor at Drexel.
The students work in a variety of different roles from clinical nurse specialist to nurse practitioner to directors in American hospitals.
During their visit, scholars from McMaster and Drexel had the chance to study the similarities and differences between nursing and advanced practice nursing in Canada and the US health care system, and share their knowledge about developments in nursing education.

Other presenters included Sandra Andreychuk from Hamilton Health Sciences and Winnie Doyle and Larissa Volman from St. Joseph’s Healthcare, as well as Dr. Rundio and Dr. Lorman from Drexel.
The group visited the main McMaster campus and toured St. Joseph’s West Fifth Campus.
