The York-UHN Nursing Academy aligns with the mission of the School of Nursing at York University and the nursing community at UHN. Both are committed to creating a culture of caring that fosters learning and the development of knowledge, research and practice.
The Academy is a virtual and physical centre linking UHN and York University and provides a gateway to new research and educational opportunities for nurses and other health professionals affiliated with both organizations.
Diploma RN to MScN Web Delivery Option
This option arose out of the need for new technology to service a multi-disciplinary team of experts. A proposal was made to the Academic Innovation Fund at York University, and the team was awarded funding. Work is in the process of being completed for a web delivery option of the RN to MScN program.
Academy Link with the CICC, the Patient Empowerment Program
We continue to work with actor Rob Hawke to advance his performance of Norm Versus Cancer, a play that explores patient-centered care and issues of patient safety.
RN Health Coach
In collaboration with nurse leaders at UHN and Southlake Regional Health Centre, a provincially-funded program offers four RNs as Coaching Partners for people with diabetes.
Professor Gail Mitchell, is the Director and Chair.
