Nephrology Nursing Program

Shauna Grant, MN, RN, CCSNE

Nova Scotia’s nephrology patients deserve health teams who are caring, knowledgeable, skilled, and engaged in reflective practice. Shauna strives to support and empower practitioners to provide high quality, collaborative, person/family-centred care using simulation, deliberate practice, and creative, individualized approaches to teaching and learning.

Shauna takes any opportunity she can to connect with and learn from her patients, colleagues, and students. Her clinical experience spans from community health and emergency nursing in northern Canada to emergency and hemodialysis nursing in Nova Scotia. Shauna has taken a leadership role in the development and facilitation of simulation-enhanced interprofessional education since 2014 and presently supports the Dalhousie Residency Simulation Program in the Eastern Zone.

Shauna has a positive and often humorous approach to life. Known for her energy and enthusiasm, she can be found cheering for her boys at hockey rinks across the province, walking in the woods with her dogs, or DJ-ing and dancing for her patients! She lives in Antigonish with her three sons and her husband, Gerry.
