Humber is proud of its collaboration with the University of New Brunswick. Both institutions have long-standing traditions of excellence in nursing education in Canada.

The program includes many hours (1400) of clinical/field practice where you will have the opportunity to put your nursing skills and knowledge to work in a supervised setting. Small class sizes of 35 - 40 students means you will get both individual and group learning opportunities.
