COTR to offer full Bachelor of Nursing program

June 30, 2016

College of the Rockies has been granted the power to offer a full Bachelor of Nursing Program at its Cranbrook Campus. Since 2005, the college has offered a Bachelor of Nursing pathway in partnership with the University of Victoria, and COTR states that it is working with UVic to ensure a smooth transition of the entire four-year program to the college. Beginning this September, students entering their first or second year of the Bachelor will be able to complete the entire program at Cranbrook. “This is a terrific opportunity for the College, our students and our region,” said COTR’s Dean of Health and Human Services Heather Hepworth. “Not only can our students remain in the East Kootenays to complete their entire program but we can retain our graduates for employment in health care in the region.” COTR
