Building Relationships with Community Partners
One goal of the University of Saskatchewan College of Nursing is to build meaningful relationships that benefit not only the College, but also the organizations we work with and the communities we live in.
As part of their nursing education, students learn how to work with various organizations and diverse communities to promote the well-being of everyone involved. We could not provide the opportunity for our students to learn these valuable skills without the help of our community partners.We are always looking to build new partnerships in communities across Saskatchewan. We would like to take this opportunity to showcase just a few of these existing partnerships between our Southern Saskatchewan Campus and community partners in Regina, Yorkton and Weyburn.
