It's an exciting opportunity to work one-on one with a faculty researcher and gain hands-on research experience. MCNHR also partners with the Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management, Faculty of Education, and the Centre on Aging to run the summer research training institute.

International research partnerships

Supporting international collaboration is a strategic priority for the College of Nursing. We work with international partners whose strategic objectives and research interests align with our own — leading to outcomes that benefit communities on a local, national and global scale.

Remembering Helen Glass

The Helen Glass Research Symposium is generously supported by the estate of Dr. Helen Glass, who was a dedicated pioneer of the nursing profession. Dr. Glass was named director of the School of Nursing in 1972, a position she held until 1979. She was instrumental in establishing a graduate program in nursing at the university and also in creating the Manitoba Nursing Research Institute — what we now know as the Manitoba Centre for Nursing Health Research (MCNHR).

Visitors to the University of Manitoba campus will note that the College of Nursing is housed in the Helen Glass Centre for Nursing, which was named in 1999 in her honour.
