At the frontlines of healthcare, nurses are figures of wellness, support, and strength. At Trent, we emphasize a well-rounded approach to healthcare and will prepare you for success whether you want to work in a hospital setting or somewhere less traditional. Beginning in year one, you will be immersed in both theory and practice through lectures, seminars, case studies, simulation labs, online coursework, and clinical practice. You will not only develop the important skills necessary for nursing, you’ll also have the opportunity to practice what you’ve learned through a range of hospital and community placement settings.
- Get hands-on with 1,000 hours of clinical, hands-on experience over four years of study
- Build your confidence and skills through hands-on learning in the Trent Simulation Hub – the first internationally accredited university simulation centre in Canada. Within the hub, students gain hands-on skills to support careers in maternal and infant health, acute illness care and chronic disease management, as well as participate in virtual clinical excursions
- Present your work (and your expertise) at regional health conferences
- Study abroad in Central America in field placements including projects at the Reyes Irene School for Girls in Honduras
"I have the opportunity to go out into the real world and practice my skills in many different settings. My time here at Trent has been fantastic, I wouldn't change a single moment."
