UNB to launch three-year Bachelor of Nursing track


The University of New Brunswick has announced that it will launch a three-year delivery option for its Bachelor of Nursing program in Saint John, starting in September 2024. Under this option, students will take three terms (instead of two) per year, allowing them to graduate one year earlier. The Government of New Brunswick will provide $412K to help launch the program and has made a commitment of up to $1.2M over a three-year period thereafter. “UNB and the Government of New Brunswick have a shared commitment and a shared vision for solving the challenges facing our province’s health-care system, which includes addressing the nursing shortage,” said UNB President Dr Paul Mazerolle. UNB’s Saint John campus additionally announced that it will offer 21 more seats for the nursing program as part of this initiative.
