The Online Scholarly Showcase is a new space on the CNSA website that gives nursing students the opportunity to display and present projects and research that they have been working on. We
believe that as future nurses and health care professionals, we must foster an environment that promotes interprofessional collaboration and knowledge sharing.

This new feature of the CNSA website is being led by the CNSA Education and Scholarship Committee in an effort to meet four goals:

  • to have a medium for Canadian nursing students to share their research;
  • increase visibility of the research conducted by nursing students throughout Canada;
  • to unite Canadian nursing students through sharing of their research;
  • and to promote discussion about research produced by Canadian nursing students.

Research is a crucial part of health care, and especially in nursing. It ensures that as health care professionals, we are providing the best and safest care possible to our clients and communities based on evidence and best practices. We encourage all nursing students to reach out to their faculty and colleagues to explore the world of research and to contribute to nursing’s specialized body of knowledge.
