BScN: Nursing Collaborative Degree Program - Ryerson University, Centennial College, George Brown College

Clinical Placements

Nursing is a profession that joins the head, heart and hands. Students immerse themselves in real-life situations so they can translate theory into practice and solidify technical, communication, care-giving and teamwork skills.

The program’s placement options take advantage of the extensive opportunities available in the GTA. Coordinated by five full-time staff in the Central Placement Office, there are more than 250 placement opportunities in 35 hospitals and over 200 traditional and non-traditional health settings.

At each stage of the program, placements support and reflect the year’s curriculum:

Year One – long-term care facility

Year Two – continuing care, rehabilitation or acute-care

Year Three – community nursing

Year Four – medical-surgical unit, ER, ICU, day-surgery unit, public health or other setting

Each placement is structured to ensure that you have substantial guidance from faculty members and preceptors, who are experienced nurses specifically assigned to support your learning. You will also have ample opportunities to integrate your field learning when you return to the classroom.
