uMoncton nursing student accuses uMoncton of discrimination

August 4, 2016

CBC reports that a Université de Moncton nursing student is preparing an appeal and considering a human rights complaint after the institution allegedly failed to accommodate her learning disability. Brigid Stanford-Finnerty said she failed a clinical component of the program because she wasn’t given sufficient time. She further added that she was advised that faculty were not under obligation to provide her with accommodations during her clinical shifts and further pursuit of the complaint would allegedly see her removed from the program. The student federation commented that it has received more student complaints about the nursing department than any other faculty on campus. CBC
