Climate Change Content and Green Initiatives in Canadian Schools of Nursing

All Canadian schools of nursing were surveyed regarding the inclusion of content on climate change and the possible health effects in nursing courses. The survey also included questions regarding the existence of “green committees” within the schools of nursing, and school representation on similar university committees. Results revealed limited efforts at greening the curriculum, but pointed to some good ideas for expanding school of nursing initiatives.
