Student experience

Student involvement is a cornerstone of the program. In addition to classroom lectures, students study in small learning groups of six to eight people, working closely with professors to examine, in critical and creative ways, the many facets of nursing in today’s society. Furthermore, starting with the very first nursing course, students gain hands-on experience and knowledge in a McGill teaching hospital or affiliated centre, where they learn to help people manage health and illness situations.


Possible minors

Minors are a great way to customize your academic experience. Many students use minors to pursue interests outside their major, while others choose minors to complement their degree.
