USask announces plans to redistribute nursing seats to northern, rural communities

The Regina Leader-Post reports that the University of Saskatchewan’s college of nursing is planning to close its Regina campus and redistribute the seats to smaller communities in order to address the need for nursing education in northern and rural communities. The Regina campus will reduce its intake to zero for the 2022-2023 school year, and will wind down its operations in 2024 once all students in the program have graduated. The Leader-Post says that some faculty members have expressed concern about the plans and say that Regina provides opportunities for students to experience a greater variety of situations, which better prepares them for a career once they graduate.
