As faculty will share with you their passion with distinct populations and how the knowledge they gain through their research translates to changed practices, improved patient care, and quality in health care.
The School of Nursing is supported by its engaged community members, alumni, emeriti and committed faculty and staff. As the largest health care profession in the province and the most accessible professional providing 24/7 point of care to patients in their most vulnerable times, nurses combine their knowledge of the sciences, expert communication techniques, and understanding of the whole person and the community in which they live to improve health outcomes, prevent injury, and advocate for access to the best care possible.
