What will I learn?

In 2000, as a result of provincial BScN degree entry-to-practice requirements for registered nurses in Ontario, Laurentian University entered into a formal collaborative educational partnership with Cambrian College of Applied Arts and Sciences, Northern College of Applied Arts and Sciences, and Sault College of Applied Arts and Science. Upon admission to the program, students may complete all four years of the program at the institution to which they have been accepted. In 2005, Laurentian University also entered into a formal collaborative educational partnership with St. Lawrence College encompassing its Brockville, Cornwall, and Kingston sites to facilitate access to BScN education.
