Bachelor of Science in Nursing

Cambrian College has received approval to offer its own stand-alone BScN program, beginning in September, 2022.

As a result, the collaborative BScN currently in place will begin to wind down. This wind-down will have no impact on students currently in the collaborative program. They will progress in their studies as planned, and upon successful completion, earn a BScN degree granted by Laurentian University, with 2025 marking the final graduating class for the collaborative BScN.
