Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning

Bachelor of Nursing - Regular

Humber is proud of its collaboration with the University of New Brunswick. Both institutions have long-standing traditions of excellence in nursing education in Canada. As a UNB-Humber Nursing student, you’ll receive all four years of your university undergraduate degree education at Humber in Toronto. Upon successful completion, you’ll receive a Bachelor of Nursing degree from the University of New Brunswick.

Our curriculum focuses on the nurse’s role in community/public health, primary health-care and acute-care settings. The program includes many hours of clinical/field practice where you will have the opportunity to put your nursing skills and knowledge to work in a supervised setting. Our goal is to give you the complete picture of what it’s like to work in health care and to strengthen your connection with patients and families. That personal touch complements courses such as Anatomy and Physiology, Chronic Health Challenges, Pharmacotherapeutics and more.

Small class sizes of 35 to 40 students means you will get both individual and group learning opportunities. Your clinical experiences will be diverse and cover a broad range of settings including community agencies, schools, long-term care facilities and hospitals.

Humber has relationships with more than 100 community agencies and makes every effort to give you the best possible experience in all the areas you could potentially work in after you have graduated.

Your Career

Rapidly advancing medical therapies and treatments coupled with Canada’s aging population makes health care a dynamic place to build your career. The demand for nurses is growing faster than many other hot job markets and is expected to increase through to 2020. In order to create a comprehensive, leading-edge curriculum, Humber has partnered with the University of New Brunswick (UNB) to offer UNB’s Nursing program at Humber’s North Campus.

When you graduate, you will be able to apply for provincial, national and international employment opportunities as practitioners, educators and managers in community/public health agencies, hospitals, long-term care facilities, primary health-care or acute-care settings, rehabilitation services, clinics, private practices and more. You may also choose to pursue graduate education and go into teaching or research.
