Cégep de Victoriaville has been approved to launch a revised version of its DEC in nursing (180.B0) program, and has also applied for programs in the area of civil engineering, social work, and physiotherapy. Cégep de l’Outaouais has been approved to launch three new programs in the areas of radiodiagnostic technology, social work, and leisure management.
