Description: You?re a caring, compassionate person, ready to help those most in need. Why not make a career of it? We?ll give you the nursing skills and knowledge to help make a real difference in people?s health ? and their lives. Confederation College?s Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing is a joint program with Lakehead University. This offers the advantage of two institutions, each with our own rich history in nursing education. Students take classes on both campuses learning from nursing faculty with expertise in the broad scope of nursing practice. Together, we offer students a cutting-edge nursing program that prepares them for a career in modern health care.

Graduates of the nursing program are leaders and advocates for health in northwestern Ontario. In the baccalaureate nursing program students learn and transition through a transformative approach facilitated by the creation of environments that engage them as active, self-?‐directed, and diverse learners. Through knowledge of self, others and contexts, students engage in relational practice to care for others. Students commit to core nursing values such as caring, integrity, respect, compassion, and social justice as the foundation of professional nursing practice.
