NBCC to offer courses in First Nations communities

April 25, 2011

For the first time New Brunswick Community College is offering courses on First Nations reserves. NBCC president Marilyn Luscombe says it is hoped this will increase the number of Aboriginal people attending PSE institutions. More than 30 First Nations students will be able to enrol in the practical nurse program at the St. Mary's First Nation in Fredericton and an acute care program at Elsipogtog First Nation, north of Moncton.
