RhPAP staff were kept busy from January 18–20 in Banff, Alberta as several events were taking place over the same three-day period. RhPAP was happy to provide bursary funding to rural nurses for educational training at several workshops in Banff. RhPAP funding included:
• Bursaries to lower the registration cost to just $50 for each rural operating room nurse who attended the SRPC Rural Surgical Skills workshops.
• Funding for 20 rural nurses to cover the cost of registration at the UCalgary Cumming School of Medicine Emergency Medicine for Rural Hospitals Conference.
• RhPAP covered the full course tuition for six rural nurses who attended the UCalgary Trauma Nursing Core Course.
• Finally, RhPAP provided bursary funding for 17 rural nurses who are part of the endoscopy team at their rural hospital so they could attend the Endoscopy Skills Day Conference.
RhPAP is proud to contribute to the ongoing professional development of the talented health professionals that call rural Alberta home!
