Lambton College’s inaugural degree offering, a 4-year Honours Bachelor of Science – Nursing (Honours BScN) degree, prepares graduates to navigate the evolving and dynamic challenges of the Canadian healthcare system.

The unique program design prepares students to achieve the professional entry-to-practice competencies defined by the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO). Grounded by theoretical concepts of the art and science of nursing, students will be trained to the highest standards of quality and service delivery in the nursing profession.

Students in this program will develop the critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills required for success in a fast-paced healthcare environment. Students will learn to analyze issues from multiple perspectives and engage in interprofessional practice, building a foundation for skilled professionals capable of achieving successful careers across the healthcare sector. Furthermore, students will learn how research advances the practice of nursing and is an indispensable component of a graduate’s transition to professional practice. Lambton County’s unique location in the province as a border city and home to three Indigenous communities also provides students with opportunities to engage in international and national exploration of health and healthcare issues.

Safe, interactive experiential learning opportunities take place in the form of clinical placements, as well as training in the College’s Nova Chemicals Health & Research Centre which features state-of-practice simulation labs. Lambton College nursing students experience hands-on learning that encourages advanced skill acquisition that prepares them for real-world, hands-on training in clinical practice. The culmination of this excellence in nursing education ensures graduates will be confidently equipped to respond to the complex needs of the communities across the province.
