Our graduates will be prepared to complete their registration requirements to strive for professional excellence as registered nurses in Canada. 

Our small class sizes of 35 to 40 students in our theory and science courses provide you with both individual and group learning opportunities. In our simulation labs, students will practice and improve interpersonal and technical nursing skills in a safe and active learning environment. Students will receive hands-on experience across a number of clinical placements at health-related agencies across the Greater Toronto Area.
