    • BScN Nursing Program Offers Real Life Training and Thorough Theoretical Knowledge A nurse checks a patient’s pulse. She then tends to a bandage on the patient’s arm and attempts to move the patient into a sitting position. Suddenly, a teacher stops her and moves in to demonstrate the proper way of helping a patient to sit up. This is just another day at Centennial College’s Morningside Campus, which boasts facilities that mimic hospital rooms to enhance the education of students in the School of Community and Health Studies. One program that sees students using the mock clinical settings is the nursing program known as Nursing (BScN). As student Paulina explains, “We get a lot of hands-on experience. We make use of simulation labs and we use simulation dummies in the labs. And that gives us a chance to practice on ‘patients’ to really enhance our skills.” However, this is not the only special aspect of this undertaking. It is actually a rather unique nursing program Toronto has to offer. That’s because it is a collaborative program between Centennial College, George Brown College and Ryerson University. As such, students complete the first two of their four years of training at Centennial College before moving onto their final two years at Ryerson. Why is this beneficial? The experience of attending both college and university — and learning from both college and university staff — gives students the practical application that was described by Paulina at college level and in-depth theory at university level. During their time at Centennial College, students of this program partake in about 40 courses throughout which are weaved five themes: primary healthcare/health promotion; reflective practice/critical thinking; meaningful relationships/caring/communication; political/social justice; and personal/professional development. Particular courses, meanwhile, include: Nutrition for Nursing Practice, Theoretical Foundations of Nursing, Assessment of the Healthy Individual, Nursing Implications, Understanding Society, Community Health Nursing, Professional Trends and Issues, and many others. Aside from these and other nursing courses, students also take a series of required and elective courses, selected from other disciplines. These both enhance and support the broad knowledge base required of professional nurses. To ensure that students retain the large amount of information they receive, the program includes a mentorship program and peer tutoring. Lastly, to supplement on-campus lessons, students also enjoy a clinical placement. This opportunity to work in the field gives students the advantage of being able to network and make employment contacts. They are also able to apply their knowledge to the real world and real patients. To receive a registered nurse designation, students must write the College of Nurses of Ontario registration examination. This nursing school in Toronto makes them eligible for this exam. Once students obtain the RN designation, they work with persons and communities of diverse backgrounds, ages and degrees of health and illness, in a variety of contexts.
