2020 Year of the Nurse

The WHO (World Health Organization) has stated that the "world needs 9 million more nurses and midwives if it is to achieve universal health coverage by 2030." That’s why the World Health Assembly has designated 2020 the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife.  The School of Nursing will be marking this milestone by celebrating our important history, marking important anniversaries like the 25th anniversary of the Yarmouth Campus opening and helping to host several major nursing conferences in Halifax, NS (ARCASN and ICN NP/APN) .   

School of Nursing Directors

Throughout 2020 we will profiling our past directors and honourary degree recipients and their important contributions to the School.
