Working together for Environmental Health Education
The Canadian Nurses for Health and the Environment - Infirmieres et Infirmiers pour la Sante et l'Environnement (CNHE/IISE) ris currently preparing curriculum resources and learning activities that can be used by schools of nursing to integrate environmental and ecoliteracy content and theory into nursing curriculum. Nurses can also use these resources to develop their personal ecoliteracy. As part of this process, we are currently engaged in the following preparatory work
An environmental scan of resources and activities currently offered by nursing schools;
A review of the literature and available resources;
A survey to gather input from nurses and nursing faculty about topics to focus on;
Learning activities on a variety of ecoliteracy and environmental topics.
