The impact of the pandemic has shed light on the roles of nursing around the world. To celebrate International Nurses Day, the Canada-UAE Business Council is pleased to sponsor the first virtual forum focused on building nursing capacity in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Canada taking place on May 12, 2022 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. GST (9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EST).
This free event is organised by the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing, in collaboration with UAE partners including the Ministry of Health & Prevention, the Emirates Health Services, the Abu Dhabi Health Services (SEHA) and the Emirates Nursing Association. It will provide information on competencies, explore solutions and identify requirements in nursing education between both countries.
The forum will examine the following:
- Nursing competencies- a review of UAE and Canada’s nursing education competencies
- Graduate/certification programs available in Canada for UAE nurses – admission requirements and international graduate programs at post-secondary institutions across Canada
- Transition to Practice – UAE and Canadian perspectives
