Indigenous Nursing (kā-wīci-pimohtēmāt)

kā-wīci-pimohtēmāt is a group of Indigenous nurses whose goal is to educate, collaborate, and enable all Saskatchewan nurses to work together to address the current health disparities between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, and to facilitate a platform for direct communication between the College of Registered Nurses of Saskatchewan (CRNS) and the Indigenous nurses in this province.
