Acadia to build new nursing facility, pursue accreditation for permanent nursing program

Acadia University will build a new facility for nursing education thanks to a $13.9M investment from the Government of Nova Scotia. The facility will have a dry lab, clinic teaching spaces, and simulation rooms, which will enable Acadia to obtain accreditation for a permanent nursing program. The program will graduate 63 nurses per year by 2027. “Beyond benefiting nursing students, [the facility] has the opportunity to enhance the campus-wide learning experience by fostering interdisciplinary collaboration,” said Acadia President Jeff Hennessy. “This support not only prepares students for the workforce but also empowers Acadia students to make a meaningful impact on healthcare in our region and throughout the province.”
