Nursing students do in-school practicum

Third-year nursing students in La Ronge and Île-à-la-Crosse recently completed the first-ever pediatric clinical rotation to take place in northern schools.

In late March and early April, students were placed in two schools in each community as part of the Caring for Kids Where They Live practicum, an extension of a similar program undertaken by nursing faculty in Saskatoon. Using remote presence technology, the students were given interprofessional pediatric learning experiences in northern communities that included health education, physical activities, wellness assessments and health screening, referrals to other health-care professionals, and oral health screening and treatment.
