McGill School of Nursing
The McGill School of Nursing (MSN) is based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It has been a leader in nursing education, research and practice since its founding in 1920. It is recognized globally for the excellence, creativity, and rigor of its academic programs. Graduates of the School have made remarkable contributions to the development of the discipline and to the delivery of health care locally and internationally. McGill Nurses for Highlands Hope was established as a charitable academic organization in February 2006. MSN presents students with the opportunity to explore, discover and learn about the endless opportunities within, and the faces of, nursing in the 21st century.
MSN has a proud heritage of award-winning, cutting-edge scholarship and discovery. It is affiliated with over 75 major research centers and networks. Partnerships with other universities, government and industry are helping MSN researchers to have an impact. One way that MSN stands out is with the McGill Model of Nursing. It was developed and refined under the guidance of Dr. Moyra Allen. Dr. Allen envisioned nursing as taking a unique, active and complementary role in providing health care. Within the McGill Model of Nursing, nurses engage the person/family to actively participate in learning about health. Over the years, the McGill Model has been developed, refined, tested and implemented in various practice settings and has gained widespread acceptance in Canada and elsewhere as a useful framework for nursing practice.

- to provide instrumental resources to support sustainable projects originating from the Highlands Hope Nurse-Counselor Network.
- to facilitate the Tanzanian Highlands Hope Nurse-Counselor Network in establishing South-South funding sources.
- to assist Tanzanian Highlands Hope Nurses in documenting and disseminating their knowledge and the outcomes of interventions.
