Description: Northern College is one of the partners in the Laurentian University BScN Collaborative Program and, as part of this partnership with Laurentian University, our nursing students are able to complete all four years of the BScN program at Northern. The program provides opportunities for students to practice nursing skills in state of the art nursing practice labs. Simulated acute care (hospital), long term care and community settings are equipped with integrative simulation equipment. This latest technology will assist in preparing students for actual client care through simulated medical scenarios. Our nursing program also incorporates new technologies, such as specialized software packages and web-based tools, many of which are used in health-care settings. Learning experiences will be enhanced through cooperation and consultation with faculty and peers through shared activities. Northern also utilizes its on site Family Health Team clinic, to provide an excellent opportunity for nursing students to experience community-based nursing first hand while working within an interdisciplinary health care team. Graduates may find employment in acute and long-term care agencies, public health, community agencies, doctors’ offices, clinics, mental health services, traveling health agencies and with individuals and/or families.
