With looming shortages of nurses and a new appreciation of the critical role they play in health care, Seneca is launching an honours nursing degree program next fall.
Seneca College has announced that it is launching a stand-alone baccalaureate nursing degree program to meet the need for nurses in Ontario. The program, which will launch in Fall 2022, will include courses on topics such as infectious diseases and the aging population. A new pathway will also allow students graduating from Seneca’s Practical Nursing diploma program to enter into the third year of the nursing degree. “Seneca is delighted to add a baccalaureate degree in nursing to our credential options for health care professionals,” said Seneca President David Agnew. “This degree builds on 50 years of nursing education at Seneca and allows us to support the urgent need for registered nurses in Ontario.”
