Program Information

School:McGill University
Field of Study:Nursing/Registered Nurse (RN, ASN, BSN, MSN)
Description:As the basic preparation for a nursing career, McGill University’s Bachelor of Science (Nursing) offers innovative courses that develop fundamental nursing expertise and skills and opens the door to a variety of exciting career opportunities. Student involvement is a cornerstone of our program. In addition to classroom lectures, you will study in small learning groups of six to eight people, working closely with professors to examine, in critical and creative ways, the many facets of nursing in today’s society. Furthermore, starting with your first nursing course, you will gain hands-on experience and knowledge in a McGill teaching hospital or affiliated centre, where you will learn to help people manage health and illness situations.

More specifically, this will involve studying individuals and families at various stages of development and in different locations – at home, in community health-care agencies and in teaching hospitals. You will learn about the role of nursing within the health-care system and about the development of collegial partnerships with other health science disciplines.
