Welcome to the College of Nursing

“We prepare and educate nursing students to lead and make a difference to the quality of health care, world-wide.”

bevAs Dean of the College of Nursing, Faculty of Health Sciences, at the University of Manitoba, I invite you to explore our website and see the many course offerings from the Bachelor of Nursing to the PhD program. We support indigenous education by providing a  undergraduate nursing pathway. You will notice the research expertise and strengths in the College and in the Manitoba Centre for Nursing and Health Research.

As leaders in nursing education and research, our dedicated faculty will provide you with an education that prepares you to achieve your career aspirations; they will assist you to develop as lifelong learners with generic skills that can diversify your career. Our students are successful global citizens in an ever changing world and health care system.

You will enjoy our student centred approach to teaching and learning that is at the forefront of innovative nursing education. We challenge students to develop as independent learners, problem solvers and innovators. We value student engagement and interactions with academic staff and the global community.

Your learning experiences will be action oriented in our state of the art simulation laboratories, work integrated in the many clinical learning experiences in health care settings across multiple clinical and community sites both locally and internationally. Our learning strategies include using educational technology and social media.

Our success is demonstrated in the achievements of our students and staff; the leadership positions they hold; and how the knowledge from our research influences world practice. I invite you to join us as a student, staff or Alumni member. 

Kind Regards,
Beverly O'Connell, BN, MSc, PhD, FACN
