The University of Victoria

The University of Victoria School of Nursing is a partner in the Collaboration for Academic Education in Nursing (CAEN) in the province of British Columbia and the Northwest Territories. The partners in the CAEN include the nursing programs at Camosun College, Vancouver Island University (formerly Malaspina College) North Island College, UBC Okanagan (formerly Okanagan University College), Thompson Rivers University (formerly University College of the Cariboo), Selkirk College, the University of Victoria, College of the Rockies and Aurora College, Northwest Territories.

The purposes of the CAEN partnership are to:

1. Ensure the quality, integrity and effectiveness of a shared curriculum,

2. Collaborate on and foster scholarly activities,

3. Provide vision and innovation in nursing education, and

4. Be a strong voice for academic education in nursing provincially and nationally.

The eight nursing programs share a common curriculum and this curriculum is delivered at all the partner sites. The senior nurse administrator from each nursing school sits on the Steering Committee for the partnership. This group oversees the activities of the partnership and is responsible for policy development. Each site also has a representative on the partnerships' Curriculum and Evaluation Committees. The Curriculum Committee oversees curriculum implementation, review and revision and the Evaluation Committee oversees the evaluation of the nursing curriculum. In addition the partners are involved in the Nurse Educators Scholarship Project (NESP) which is a project funded by the Vancouver Foundation to enhance the capacity for scholarship within faculty across all the partner sites.
