|Field of Study:||Nursing/Registered Nurse (RN, ASN, BSN, MSN)
|Description:||In January 1987, the BScN program for registered nurses became available on a part-time basis through Distance Education at five sites. As the demand increased, the number of sites expanded from Barrie, Orillia, North Bay, Timmins and Sault Ste. Marie to include students in Oshawa, Owen Sound, St. Catharines, Toronto, Muskoka/Parry Sound, Kitchener/Guelph, Simcoe, Kirkland Lake/Englehart/Haileybury, Attawapiskat and Sudbury. The program is now available for registered nurses across Ontario and Quebec.
The curriculum combines courses from the Humanities, Sciences, Social Sciences and Nursing. Nursing is studied in increasing intensity throughout the program. In the courses NURS 2276EL, NURS 2286EL and NURS 2296EL, the emphasis is on health and normality. Students further develop the nursing process, interpersonal and physical examination skills that are required to assess individuals and families. NURS 3316EL introduces students to Epidemiology and Biostatistics. NURS 3317EL explores major contemporary issues affecting nursing and health care. The four 4000 level nursing courses provide opportunities for the student to pursue individual clinical interests, to test nursing theory, to apply aspects of the research process, and to function in a leadership role in a chosen clinical field.
