November 23, 2021
Dalhousie University has announced that it will be expanding the number of nursing seats it reserves for Mi’kmaq and African Nova Scotian students. Dal will reserve a minimum of 40 seats for students entering its Bachelor of Science Nursing Program either directly from high school or who have previous university experience. The priority seats will be available starting in the 2022-23 academic year. “In an effort to support our health equity goals, through these prioritized seats we aim to enrich our student body and learning environment, while also providing Mi’kmaq and African Nova Scotian students greater access to the profession of nursing,” said Dal School of Nursing director Ruth Martin-Misener.
