Selkirk College is proud to host the annual University of Victoria and College Partners Conference at the 10th Street Campus in Nelson, B.C. April 23 and 24, 2018. Building on the strengths of our past partnerships, we are moving forward into the future of nursing education.
In the early 1990, the Collaborative Nursing Program (CNP) was founded. In 2004, the partnership took on new partners and became the Collaboration for Academic Education in Nursing (CAEN). This partnership again shifted in 2014 and became the current University of Victoria and College BSN Partners.
One of the most valuable aspects of these evolving partnerships has been the opportunity to network and develop collegial relationships through an annual conference.
Four Strong Winds
The five partners are Aurora College, Camosun College, College of the Rockies, Selkirk College and the University of Victoria. The theme for the conference is “Four Strong Winds” and will reflect the focus of the work we do as nurse educators:
- Collaboration (embracing diversity; innovative practice placements, etc.)
- Scholarship (of teaching; or discovery; research, etc.)
- Streams (Health and Healing; Relational Practice; Professional Practice; Clinical Practice; Health Sciences; etc.)
- Faculty Development (innovation in teaching; use of technology, classroom management strategies; authentic assessment, etc.)
Abstract submissions are now closed.

The conference will end with a keynote from Dr. Helen Peel on care for self and each other. Between keynotes, plenary sessions on indigenous ways of knowing and curriculum development, researcher pathways, and enhancing metacognition and grit for student success are planned. Concurrent sessions, curriculum stream and theme discussions, and networking are also integrated into the conference.
We look forward to seeing you all in the beautiful West Kootenays!
