Event description
NorQuest College is very excited to be hosting the first NorQuest International Health Careers Challenge "Strength Through Collaboration"

About this Event

The NorQuest International Health Careers Challenge "Strength Through Collaboration" is the first of its kind in Canada! This innovative and collaborative event will bring practical nursing and health care aide students from across Canada, together with nursing students from various provinces across China.

The event will follow an Olympic-style format, with student teams coming together on August 19th for orientation, and team building. The evening of August 19th will bring together teams, faculty, administration and industry partners for an opening ceremony.

Teams of 4 will be a combination of students from Canada and China. These teams will work together to complete challenges and utilize innovative technology to grow their experience and earn challenge points.

- Day 1 of the challenge will focus on scenario planning, demonstration, documentation, and reflection. Day 2 will explore the many innovative technologies that the Practical Nurse program utilizes, for example virtual reality, and high fidelity simulation.

- Day 2 will end with the closing ceremony. This event will celebrate the top point scoring team, most collaborative team, and other areas of recognition.

Eligible students will be actively in a PN or HCA program in Canada. Upon registration you will also be required to submit a letter of recommendation from a member of faculty in your program. The challenge committee recommends that practical nursing student participants have completed their Medical/Surgical theory & lab course. Student Registration fee for the event includes;
