    NorQuest College employees are difference makers in the work we do for our college and community. We transform lives together. We work together in the spirit of Wahkotowin (togetherness) in good relations—Miyo Wahkotowin.

    The Practical Nurse program has an exciting opportunity for a curriculum reviewer to collaborate with internal and external stakeholders in an effort to identify strengths and challenges in the practical nursing curriculum. We are motivated to provide education in a way that ensures our graduates are competent in providing culturally safe care to Indigenous people, families, and communities. This role will review the practical nurse curriculum for the relationships between culture and health care, post-colonial understanding, and indigenous knowledge.


    • Reviewing current practical nurse curriculum offered in a variety of deliveries to ensure content is culturally relevant for Indigenous peoples.
    • Make recommendations for curriculum to include critical Indigenous theory, methods, and practice.
    • Identifying continuing projects or plans to support a revision of the Practical Nurse Curriculum.
    • Bachelor’s Degree in a health related field.
    • Experience with methods and actions to improve Indigenous health outcomes.
    • Teaching experience considered an asset.
    • Curriculum development experience considered an asset.
    • Lived experience within the indigenous community.
    • Exceptional communication and interpersonal skills.
    • Strong writing skills.
    • Demonstrated ability to consistently meet timelines.
    SALARY:  Reflective upon what you bring. AKA your education and experience.  This opportunity also includes 11.2% in lieu of vacation and benefits.  This is a part-time position that doesn't require being on the NorQuest campus.

    NorQuest College offers flexible work options that include working on campus, working from anywhere or a blend of both! 


    CLOSING DATE: Open until a suitable candidate is found.

    APPLY TO BECOME A NORQUESTER: If this opportunity delights you and your expertise will shine in this role, we invite you to apply for this position online by uploading your resume and cover letter combined as one document.


    PSST: Only candidates shortlisted for an interview will be contacted and we’ll make sure to do this within 28 days of the closing date.

    Difference Makers. If we were to describe what NorQuest College is, we’d say these two words. We are so fundamentally driven in our mission to make a difference to our students, our community, and to our fellow NorQuesters, that it guides what we do, who we meet, and where we are headed.

    So how do we make differences?

    We empower NorQuesters. When it comes to working, it’s up to you to decide where (on campus or from another location) and how you work. NorQuesters are expected to embody our Qs—lead from where you are, be dependable, find ways forward—to name a few, but how you do that is your choice!

    We unlock potential. Whether its newcomers to Canada who want to improve their English, students who want to complete their academic upgrading, learners pursuing post-secondary education, or anyone who wishes to strengthen their skills through professional development, our passion to educate touches people of all levels and all backgrounds.

    We strengthen Alberta. From our graduates who hit the ground running, to our partnerships with government, industry, and business, to our commitment to communities, including a dedicated focus on Indigenous communities, we contribute to our province and make it stronger. We strive to be an employer of choice for First Nations, Metis and Inuit people in Canada by leading, supporting, and being an ally through our work toward decolonization, reconciliation, and Indigenization.
