The University of Moncton’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, Edmundston Campus (UMCE), takes advantage of this special interest during the fall months by visiting several high school students who enroll in the Student, One Day Student.
On Wednesday, November 24, UMCE’s Nursing Science Division welcomed 12th graders Nadine Terrain, Kim Belanger and Marie-Yves Martin, all three from Saint Basile, who were accepted into the program at the start of the September 2022 school year.
Well supervised by sector staff, students of the Cité des jeunes A.-M.-Sormany in Edmundston participated in the APS (Learning by Simulation), a laboratory-delivered course. They were accompanied by Professor Frans Laplant Terriault, student Annie Caron and teacher Veronique Duguay. Participants also had the opportunity to tour the facilities available to nursing students and meet with Head of Sector Tina Emond.
