Janet Luimes RN(NP), MScN Associate Professor - Academic Programming

E4212 Health Sciences, Saskatoon


My name is Janet Luimes and I am an Assistant Professor (Academic Programing). I completed my BScN and MScN at the University of Ottawa before going on to complete the Post-Masters Primary Health Care Nurse Practitioner Diploma program at McMaster University in 2010. I have been teaching in the USask College of Nursing since 2012, primarily within the Nurse Practitioner program.

My clinical background includes the emergency room, chronic disease management, and primary health care, including program development and evaluation. I maintain active clinical practice as a primary health care nurse practitioner which informs my professional practice, scholarship and educator role. My research interest is in the area of primary health care NP competencies and education.
