Ministry Title: Bachelor of Science - Nursing - Second Entry Preparation
Program Code: 09341
Length: N/A starting in September
With Canada’s aging population and growing needs in health care, nurses are more in-demand than ever. Fast track your career in nursing by using your previous university studies toward admittance to this program offered by Humber College in collaboration with the University of New Brunswick (UNB). While students in this program complete their studies at Humber in Toronto, they graduate with a Bachelor of Nursing from UNB, positioning them well for a career in health care. Our combination of theoretical and hands-on learning focuses on the various roles nurses can have in provincial, national and international placements in community/public health, primary health care or acute-care settings, and provides clinical experience necessary to successfully pursue employment in these environments.
Humber is the only English speaking college in Ontario with access to an on-campus cadaver lab for nursing students. Combine that with small class sizes, simulation labs, bioscience and anatomy labs, and clinical work placement opportunities -- Humber students have the competitive edge.
This program is not available to international applicants.
