Sharon Laskiwski

My clinical expertise is in the area of Quality Improvement, Gerontology and Acute Care. With previous teaching and administrative experience in both urban and rural health care settings my career path entails a variety of capacities. Previous positions held in Alberta began as a Registered Nurse in Neurosurgery and Clinical Nurse Specialist at the University of Alberta Hospital, Management Information System (MIS) Provincial Nursing Consultant and Resident Classification Coordinator with Alberta Health & Wellness, Regional Coordinator Quality Improvement/Accreditation Coordinator with Cross Roads and Aspen Regional Health Authorities and currently am honoured to serve as a Faculty Lecturer with the Faculty of Nursing.

 

I teach in the After Degree, Collaborative, & Post RN undergraduate nursing programs in areas related to continuing and acute care nursing theory, health assessment, community health, nursing management and leadership, and health system trends and issues.

As an educator, my goal is to facilitate inspirational, caring and authentic learning experiences that foster learners' to be the best they possible can. The quest for shared ongoing teaching and learning experiences remains dear to my heart and believe we all learn from one another. My teaching philosophy can best be depicted from Epicurus a Greek Philosopher who pioneered the concept of 'Ethic Reciprocity' cited in The Essential Epicurus (1993) whereby honor is upheld.

I am currently a member of the Nursing Education Area of Excellence (AOE), Nursing Philosophy, Pedagogy and History Area of Excellence within the Faculty of Nursing, and external professional association memberships with the Canadian College of Health Service Executives, College & Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta and Sigma Theta Tau Nursing Honor Society (Mu Sigma Chapter). As a part of my service to the Faculty, I am a member of the Accreditation Approval Committee.
