BCNU will be hosting a number of online nursing professional practice workshops with local and global experts on a variety of themes this year. These will replace BCNU's "physically attended" nursing professional practice conference, which cannot proceed due to the Provincial Health Officer's order restricting group gatherings.

BCNU student nurse members are invited to attend the first of these workshops, being held on May 13. In this workshop, Dr. Katrina Plamondon will explore issues of equity and COVID-19, especially equitable access to vaccines. Situating the pandemic as an inherently global health issue that requires global responses.

This event does not require students to submit an application form. Students will be registered alongside regular members on a first come, first served basis.
