More nursing student spaces for BC's Interior

April 21, 2011

The BC government announced Thursday a $2-million investment to add 24 first-year nursing student spaces in the province's Interior. Under a partnership between Okanagan College and the University of British Columbia's Okanagan campus, nursing students will have the option to complete the first half of the 4-year bachelor of science in nursing program at the college, then join other third-year nursing students at UBCO, where they will complete their degree requirements together. The partnership means that, starting in 2015, up to 134 nursing students will graduate from UBCO each year. BC News Release
