About Us

In 2014, Elaine Santa Mina, Associate Professor in the Daphne Cockwell School of Nursing at Ryerson University, Kirsten Woodend, Associate Professor in the Trent/Fleming School of Nursing at Trent University, Linda Patrick, Associate Professor in the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Windsor, and Pat Bradley, Professor Emeritus in the School of Nursing at York University, came together through the Council of Ontario Universities Programs in Nursing to explore a consortium approach to meet the competency based educational needs of internationally educated nurses (IENs). A consortium approach was chosen in order to draw on province-wide expertise in IEN education, align with existing offerings, and to provide access and flexibility for IENs across the province.
