Description:Today's nurses are caring, compassionate and highly skilled men and women who nurture and treat patients alongside a team of medical professionals. The demands of a career in nursing are matched only by the personal and societal rewards that come on a daily basis. If you're ready for a high-paced, in-demand career where your kindness and medical knowledge help others, our accredited, Fanshawe's 4-year BScN program will give you the clinical skills and certification you need.
You'll study for two years at Fanshawe and two at Western University, earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree (BScN). You'll learn from experienced nurses who have been in busy ERs and doctor's offices, professionals who know the ropes and want to teach you.
