Dr. Donna Martin acquired a Diploma in Nursing from the Health Sciences Centre in 1974 and practiced as a nurse in adult and pediatric medicine and critical care. Her passion for nursing education began in 1987 as a teacher in the Neonatal/Pediatric Critical Care Program at Children’s Hospital. She acquired a BN in 1981 and a MN in 1997 – both from the University of Manitoba. During her graduate studies, she travelled to several First Nation communities, which inspired her to promote social justice and equity. She obtained a PhD in Nursing from the University of British Columbia in 2006. Currently, Dr. Martin is an Assistant Professor in the College of Nursing. She is a co-principal investigator with a multidisciplinary research team and the Chief and Council of Little Saskatchewan First Nation in several CIHR-funded studies to explore the micro- and macro-construction of induced displacement as a result of the 2011 flood.
