The Aboriginal Nursing Cohort Initiative (ANCI) provides students with First Nations, Métis and Inuit ancestry with academic and personal supports to facilitate success.  We encourage First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples who are interested in becoming a nurse to apply because we provide: 

Academic Support: Free tutoring is available for most courses to help you reach your full potential. The number of courses per term is reduced to help you adjust to life as a university student.

Personal Support: You meet regularly with a personal councillor, academic advisor, and academic coach. The number of students in these classes is limited so you get to know your classmates and teachers in a friendly environment. 

Financial Support: We assist students in completing applications and obtaining funding through their First Nation Educational Authority, Métis funding programs or Canada Student Loans.

Benefits of the Cohort Initiative:

  • Tutoring available for most courses
  • Counseling support
  • Small class size
