A deeper focus on acute and chronic healthcare considerations, as well as mental health concepts is experienced by students in theory and the simulation environment. Expansion and development of higher levels of nursing knowledge within the profession are explored in courses related to global health context and data analysis. Knowledge and clinical judgment will be further refined during professional practice placements in acute care settings such as long-term care, medicine, surgery, and orthopedics in the first term, and more specialized units with higher patient complexity in the second term.

All professional practice placements will be located within the Southwest geographic area.
