September 27, 2001
Wednesday, September 26, 2001, Trent University and Sir Sandford Fleming College invited students, staff, officials, and the health care community to join in a celebration of the new Trent/Fleming Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program launched this September.
Over 100 students are enrolled in the program, a partnership between the university and the college. Responding to a need for nurses locally, provincially, and nationally, the new program allows students to attain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, the new minimum academic requirement for nursing registration and licensure with the College of Nurses of Ontario, effective January 1, 2005.
The Trent/Fleming Nursing program is held up as one of the provinces' leading partnership models. Unique in every way, Trent/Fleming Nursing allows students to attend both institutions throughout their four-year program. By exploring scientific theory and nursing practice simultaneously, Trent/Fleming students will bring advanced knowledge and essential hands-on techniques to the health care field.
Among those attending the event were students
currently enrolled in the program, university and college nursing
faculty, university and college administration, and representatives
from a variety of health care agencies from a variety of the
health care agencies across Northumberland, Victoria, and Peterborough
