The Trent/Fleming B.Sc.N. (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) Program, now in its second year, welcomed 104 new students this week. Combined with returning second-year students, there are now 200 nursing students on campus.
A barbeque was held
on Tuesday, September 10, to welcome new students and recognize top-standing
students from last year's class. President Bonnie Patterson attended the
event and told the nursing students they are a group of "pioneers,
moving forward to a new standard" in health care. She added that,
as a board member of the Peterborough Regional Health Centre, she feels
there is a lot of excitement in the community about the Trent/Fleming
"Leaders in this community are excited to see students studying nursing at this level," President Patterson said.
