Got a burning issue on your mind that you just wish you could talk to the admin about? A simple idea that would make a service on campus so much more convenient? Have you been scratching your head about a certain procedure, but don’t know who to ask for help? The Consultation Fair is your chance to share ideas face-to-face with the people who can make them happen! We are inviting students, faculty members, and the representatives of different units and services to discuss what the perfect McGill experience should look like and what could or should be improved to make that happen. Now we need YOUR input to tell us what matters the most. Who should we invite? What do you want to talk about? Fill out this quick survey and save the date (October 26th, 4.30pm to 6pm) for a chance to participate in constructive, meaningful dialogue with the people

who want to make your student experience the best possible!

Are you a graduating student looking for a potential job? The Jewish General Hospital is inviting you to a Nursing Open House on Nov. 17 from 16:30-19:00. See attached invitation for more details.



7) BScN U2 Students – Participation in study wanted!


Your participation is requested for a project looking at emotions and self-efficacy in clinical training environments. Emotions play a huge role in our everyday and academic lives, how you feel matters to us. Being a student may illicit many different feelings, nursing students especially are placed in unique achievement settings that involve both classroom and clinical learning. The goal of this research project is to find out how nursing students are feeling in their clinical training and how these feelings may influence their learning and performance. Emotions have been an emerging topic in the education literature as possibly having an effect on performance however little empirical studies exist to explore this phenomenon in health professions education. Your participating in this study you will be helping researchers to understand how real world clinical training experiences affect nursing students’ learning and overall performance. By identifying what emotions are experienced, how they affect the nursing student’s performance, and the way the student perceive their experience, we can hopefully decrease negative feelings and increase enjoyment of learning in nursing school.


See attached “Study Introduction” and “Participation Request” for more info!
