PhD Candidate, MN, BSc.N, BSc., RN
Corinne Rogers has been an educator for more than 15 years and nursing is her second career. She taught high school chemistry, physics, and biology for 15 years before completing her nursing degree and MN. Rogers' international experience working as the primary RN for an NGO, which works with trafficked women and children in Southeast Asia, informed her research interests. Her work involved addressing the health needs of women and children rescued from a variety of trafficked situations and collaborating with local healthcare providers. Rogers is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Alberta. As a narrative inquirer, she worked alongside women previously trafficked in Alberta to explore their lived experiences of health and wellbeing across their life course. Rogers hopes to work alongside women previously trafficked to co-create new pathways forward in understanding the issues they face across their life course, understanding the importance of co-creating reciprocity within the research relationship between the researcher and participants, attending to participants’ voices. She is currently employed as an assistant lecturer for the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Alberta where she teaches Community Health and Equity Diversity and Inclusivity within Global Health. Rogers is also a course developer for the Faculty of Education at the University of Alberta, developing multiple courses on equity, diversity and inclusivity within teaching pedagogies. Finally, as the vice chair of the New Canadians Health Centre, Rogers supports board and a model of care based on the lived experiences of refugees.
