YorkU launches stand-alone Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree

November 25, 2021
York University has launched a stand-alone Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. The program, which will receive $385K in support from the Government of Ontario, will welcome its first students in Fall 2022. The degree was previously offered in partnership with two colleges, but recent changes from ON have allowed all three institutions to offer independent degrees. “[T]he new stand-alone Nursing degree will reduce barriers and create more opportunities for students to respond to the needs of the culturally diverse communities we serve, reduce health inequalities, and explore social, economic and cultural determinants of health and healthcare outcomes,” said YorkU President Rhonda Lenton.
