The School of Nursing prepares the next generation of nurses to offer quality care, to assume leadership roles within the health care system, and to contribute to the advancement of knowledge. The School is committed to making a distinctive contribution to nursing through excellence in education, research, and community engagement to promote individual and collective health and wellbeing.
Programs are offered in both official languages. Undergraduate students can choose from three programs that lead to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) degree. Two of these programs are offered jointly with Ottawa-area colleges; Algonquin College (Woodroffe) and Algonquin College (Pembroke). A BScN degree leads to career opportunities in public health, community agencies, hospitals, rehabilitation centres, long-term care facilities, private industry, and more. Graduate students can choose to continue their education with a master’s program or with a doctoral program in nursing.
