Program Information

School:Laurentian University/Universite Laurentienne
Faculty:Faculty of Health
Field of Study:Nursing/Registered Nurse (RN, ASN, BSN, MSN)
Description:Nursing is a knowledge-based profession including an exciting blend of science, mathematics, psychology, anthropology, organizational management, and sociology, to name a few. Nursing education addresses each of these areas and prepares the student for a lifelong career locally or abroad with opportunities in acute care hospital, public health, community health care, telehealth, outpost nursing, research, education, health care management, health policy development, and much more.

The philosophy of the nursing program is consistent with and reflects common beliefs of nurses in education and practice nationally and internationally and is influenced by and exists within sociological, cultural, and political landscapes and individual perspectives. The program has evolved from philosophy that reflects a commitment to empirical, humanistic, feminist, phenomenological, existential, and critical social theory perspectives, which consider the changing health care needs of society. The foundational tenets included within the program philosophy are: health, professional caring, healing, determinants of health, relational practice, and professional growth, which are facilitated by the foundational processes: nursing knowledge, time and transition, reflective practice, context and culture, and praxis. The philosophy and foundational tenets within the program are continually evolving, and are articulated and actualized throughout each year of the program, and in each course of the program.
