Collaborative Four-Year B.Sc.N Program

This program is four years in length and is designed for individuals who are seeking to prepare for a career in nursing at the baccalaureate level.

The curriculum is designed on the premise that professional nursing is multidisciplinary in nature, applying nursing, biological and social sciences, as well as the arts, to the care of individuals, families and communities. As inquiring, caring, competent practitioners, nurses serve the needs of society through health promotion, health maintenance, prevention of disease and care of the sick and dying.

The Faculty of Nursing programs are approved and accredited. National Accreditation was granted in 1998 by the Board of Accreditation, Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN). The collaborative program was granted candidacy status by the Board of Accreditation of CASN in 2004. In 2016, CASN Accreditation Bureau granted the University of Windsor, Lambton College and St. Clair College Collaborative Nursing Program a 7-year term in response to the on-site review that took place in November 2015.

Upon successful completion of the program, students are eligible to write nurse registration examinations and pursue graduate studies.
