Recommendation 24 of the report by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission calls upon medical and nursing schools to offer “skills-based training in intercultural competency, conflict resolution, human rights, and anti-racism.” 

Given that the reality of Indigenous peoples is tied to the concept of cultural safety, which represents a common thread in several of the courses, especially in the Bachelor of Nursing and the Practical Nursing Diploma, SNHS successfully meets and indeed exceeds this recommendation.

In this vein, the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) has also developed tools for member schools, enabling them to integrate the teaching of cultural competence and safety as related to Indigenous peoples into student training:

Cultural Competence and Cultural Safety in Nursing Education
Cultural Competence and Cultural Safety in First Nations, Inuit and Métis Nursing Education
