Nursing Program Advocacy
For anyone who has not heard, AUSU has been working tirelessly over the past nine months to advocate on behalf of our members against the retroactive program changes that AU made to the Nursing program.
The advocacy efforts have been led by our AUSU President, Shawna Wasylyshyn, who has had numerous meetings about these changes with the AU President & VP’s, the AU Board of Governors, Faculty of Health Disciplines Faculty Council, among others. AUSU also wrote letters to the Nursing Education Program Approval Board, the interim Chair of the AU Board of Governors and to AU’s interim President, as well as submitted numerous requests for information under the FOIP act hoping to gain an understanding of what AU did to properly implement the changes they made, their motivation, and how many students were effected. AUSU also notified AU that our next step would be to implement a judicial review. This has been the biggest advocacy effort in recent AUSU history.
We are pleased to announce that we have made some progress! Although we are not done our work yet, the Faculty of Health Disciplines Faculty Council just passed two motions to address the concerns that have been raised, which is good news for Nursing students!

Fill Out a Course Evaluation!
Have you completed an AU course in the past year?
If so, fill out an AUSU Course Evaluation online here!
These evaluations are different than the ones sent out by AU, as ours are available anytime, even after your course is complete. In addition, although your responses are confidential, you can view the course evaluation results as well. The more evaluations we receive, the more useful this information is to AU students!
