In 2016, three groups comprising of undergraduate nursing students at McGill presented their research topics in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, from Septemeber 25th to 27th. They worked alongside Ingram School of Nursing (ISoN) faculty members, Prof. Anne Chevrier, Prof. Elaine Doucette, and Prof. Lia Sanzone throughout the Summer (2016) to prepare for this nursing research initiative. These sixteen students (comprising of BScN U3 or BNI U3 students)  fundraised throughout the year in order to help cover some of the expenses of their trip.
