Canadore Offering Nursing Degrees In North Bay

The province is providing a new pathway for nursing education in North Bay with the launch of Canadore College’s new stand-alone four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.

Details were shared today by Jill Dunlop, Minister of Colleges and Universities and Vic Fedeli, MPP for Nipissing.

“This is an important milestone for postsecondary education in Ontario. Canadore College will offer a stand-alone nursing degree independent of a partner institution right here in North Bay,” said Minister Dunlop.

The new program builds on Ontario’s recent changes allowing both publicly-assisted colleges and universities to offer a baccalaureate degree in nursing to increase opportunities for students to access a high-quality education.

The first cohort of nursing students in Canadore College’s new Bachelor of Science in Nursing program will start in September 2022.
