“This field school brought forward challenges in my beliefs and values, and I was able to reflect on the differences of practice. I gained a greater understanding and respect for the people of New Zealand and a greater understanding of myself.”
Jasleen Tung, 2016 participant
“Inspired by the Maori and Pacific cultures, which emulate strength and a strong sense of community, this opportunity was a wakeup call to further my knowledge relating to our own local Canadian First Nations people and reflect the significance of cultural safety in my own nursing practice.”
Rosemary Angus, 2015 participant
