uLethbridge, Lethbridge College nursing program receives national accreditation

October 18, 2016

A nursing program delivered collaboratively by Lethbridge College and the University of Lethbridge has received accreditation from the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing. While the program has been approved at the provincial level since its creation, the new accreditation means that it has met the national standards for all nursing programs across Canada. “The benefit for students is that they have a CASN-accredited program supporting their access into graduate programming in nursing, as well as international nursing opportunities,” says Chris Hosgood, dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences at uLethbridge. “Students also receive life experience that is the best of both worlds,” adds Debra Bardock, dean of Lethbridge College’s Centre for Health and Wellness. “They experience both university and college life, and ultimately get to benefit from the success of the high-level collaboration between the two institutions.” uLethbridge
