Nursing science focuses on promotion, maintenance, and restoration of health and quality of life for individuals, families, and communities. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program, offered in collaboration with the University of Ottawa, educates nurses at the undergraduate level through an approach that encourages self-direction, critical thinking and life-long learning. As a graduate, you will contribute to the development of nursing as an art and a science and address the challenges facing the health care system. Acting within the context of a multidisciplinary team, you will be in high demand and have a choice of working in hospitals, community health agencies, and long-term care facilities across Canada and around the world. Students enrolling in the collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing program may choose to study at either the University or College site.
