Nancy Waite is the Associate Director, Practice-Based Education and Professional Outreach with the School of Pharmacy at the University of Waterloo. She is interested in researching co-operative education because she believes it is important to document what students gain from their co-op experience. Also in pharmacy, there are specific education outcomes and co-op delivers learning on a number of these outcomes. Within her research, she has published an article on the role of pharmacist coaches in enhancing students’ co-op experience. Currently, she is examining the role of communities of practice during regional direct patient care rotations. She and her team are interested in publishing their work on educational outcome achievement through a mixed experiential model.
