St. Clair College will start to offer stand-alone nursing degree programs after changes made by the Ontario government.

“This is terrific news for students and health-care professionals in Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent,” said St. Clair College President Patti France.

Since 2000, the province has required any college wishing to offer a nursing degree program to partner with a university. The college says that research has shown that this has created unnecessary costs and other bureaucratic hurdles for some, discouraging students from going into the nursing profession.

“We have enjoyed a collaborative partnership with the University of Windsor and we are committed to ensuring a smooth transition for our existing students in the St. Clair College/University of Windsor Collaborative Nursing program,” said France.
