Native Canadian First Nations Reserve to Have Nursing Training

This fall, 18 students on the Kawacatoose Native Canadian First Nation reserve in Saskatchewan will begin a practical nursing training program. The reserve has a nursing shortage, and tribal members wanted a nursing program close to home. They approached SIAST to form a partnership of traveling professors and participating hospitals for training. Previously, the band offered an on-reserve four-year education program with the University of Regina. Nineteen Canadian Native First Nations students graduated.
