The program consists of three modules that promote task-based, discovery and experiential-based learning opportunities:
- Module 1: Specialized Language
Emphasis is placed on reinforcing the essential language needed to provide primary care in common patient-nurse situations such as in Midwifery / Obstetrics, Pediatrics, Geriatrics, Triage Assessment, Surgery, Oncology, Trauma, Emergency and Intensive / Critical Care to name a few.
- Module 2: Field Specific Workshops
This module comprises several workshops by McGill nursing professors and/or practicing nurses. Emphasis is placed on:
o the McGill Model of Nursing
o Nursing Practice in Quebec/Canada
o An Overview and Trends of the North American Healthcare System
- Module 3: Healthcare Facility Site Visits
Students will visit hospitals and other healthcare facilities to see first hand how nursing is practiced in Quebec. They will have the opportunity to ask questions to healthcare professionals on staff as well as to “shadow” nurses while they are making their rounds and providing healthcare to patients.
