Nurses plays a pivotal role in everyday healthcare by working hard to positively impact the lives of countless individuals in need. Accredited by the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing, Trent’s B.Sc.N. offers aspiring nurses the option of pursuing either a collaborative or compressed degree with an emphasis on a holistic approach to healthcare, spanning a variety of nursing contexts. Starting in your first year, you’ll be immersed in both theory and practice, developing important skills through lectures, seminars, case studies, simulation labs, online coursework, and clinical practice. By the final year of study, you’ll have the opportunity to practice nursing in a range of hospital and community settings.

Trent’s P.N. to B.Sc.N. program enables students to fast track through the program in less than two years, after completing a two-semester Post-Bridge Practical Nursing to Bachelor of Science in Nursing bridge at George Brown College.

“In Nursing, I have the opportunity to go out into the real world and practice my skills in many different settings. I’ve been able to work in a long-term care setting as well as a maternity ward. In class we focus on the practical with weekly labs in the DNA building, working with simulation dummies, and we have theory based courses so we learn what it’s really like to be a nurse.” Joanna McMurchy, Trent/Fleming School of Nursing
