My favourite thing about Laurentian is that it’s so close to nature. It’s so easy to get outside and go for a hike. My time at Laurentian has been amazing. Not only is it a fantastic place to study, but I’ve also had the opportunity to be a part of the residence life team and on campus life is amazing. The thing I enjoy most about studying nursing is the opportunity to start clinical in first year. I’ve had many unique learning opportunities and they have really showed me that nursing is the right program for me. The most amazing experience so far has been my placement this semester in pediatrics. I would recommend this program and Laurentian to anybody.
