The Nursing Program is based on a conceptual framework of nursing adopted by the John Abbott Nursing Department, which is designed to meet the Nursing competencies as outlined by the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur.
WHAT DISTINGUISHES THE PROGRAM OFFERED AT JAC FROM OTHERS LIKE IT?
The Goal of our Nursing programs is to educate students in meeting the challenges of this demanding profession. Classroom and laboratory experiences include integrated simulation and technology, combined with clinical fieldwork in Montreal-area hospitals. Nursing students study in specialties ranging from medicine, surgery, rehabilitation, geriatrics, obstetrics, psychiatry and pediatrics.
The hours spent in the clinical setting gradually increase so that by the third year, students spend much of their time in a hospital setting integrating their knowledge and skills acquired throughout the program.
John Abbott also offers through its Centre for Continuing Education, a Professional Integration program for internationally educated nurses and a refresher program for registered practical nurses. Please contact the Centre for Continuing Education at local 5272 for more information.
