Kenjgewin Teg, Fleming partner to offer Practical Nursing program

December 14, 2020

Fleming College and Kenjgewin Teg have partnered on a Practical Nursing program on Manitoulin Island (Mnidoo Mnising). The five-year agreement will allow Kenjgewin Teg to act as a service provider offering Fleming’s Practical Nursing program. Students will participate in virtually delivered theory curriculum and on-site clinical learning opportunities at partner locations. “This new partnership will allow us to provide ongoing support and help meet the ever-growing needs of not only our local and regional First Nation health sector organizations, but will also help Ontario’s health sector too by supporting goals of hiring diversity of both Indigenous people and Indigenous perspectives in healthcare,” said Natasha Abotossaway, Kenjgewin Teg’s Health and Wellness Programs Coordinator.
