This case study provides a historical account of the development of the Northern Bachelor of Nursing Program in the Canadian province of Manitoba through the lens of self-determination (governance) efforts in the fields of health and education by the Swampy Cree Tribal Council. Using records from the Faculty of Nursing archives at the University of Manitoba, the authors outline the chronology of the Northern Bachelor of Nursing Program in 4 phases: initiation (1982–86), development (1986–88), management (1986–90), and implementation and closure (1990–94). Contemporary implications of full partnership between universities and Aboriginal organizations are discussed.

Cette étude de cas offre un témoignage historique du parcours qui a caractérisé l'élaboration du programme de baccalauréat en sciences infirmières en région nordique, notamment dans la province du Manitoba. L'approche utilisée dans le cadre de l'étude est axée sur les efforts d'autodétermination (gouvernance) déployés par le conseil tribal des Moskégons dans les domaines de la santé et de l'éducation. Ayant recours aux archives de la Faculté des sciences infirmières de l'Université du Manitoba, les auteurs livrent les grandes lignes de la chronologie du baccalauréat nordique du programme de sciences infirmières, en quatre phases : la conception (1982 à 1986); l'élaboration (1986 à 1988); la gestion (1986 à 1990); la mise en œuvre et la clôture (1990 à 1994). Les répercussions contemporaines générées par un partenariat à part entière entre les universités et les organisations autochtones font l'objet d'une discussion.
