The Community-Based Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) program has been offered in some form since 2005, the main goal of the program being to provide education in students’ home communities to prepare them for health care careers in those same communities. 

A collaboration with Lakehead University, the program has been offered to students at a selection of our regional campuses, which include: Dryden, Lake of the Woods (Kenora), Rainy River District (Fort Frances) and Sioux Lookout. The communities and their local medical centres and long-term care facilities also provide invaluable support in advisory capacities and through clinical placements.
