L’École des sciences infirmières has a long history and presence in northern Ontario, and has
been preparing people to enter the nursing profession for over 50 years. The four-year
Baccalauréat en sciences infirmières (BScInf) program offered in French is nationally accredited
by the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing, and provincially approved by the College of
Nurses of Ontario. We also offer two other programs in French: the B.Sc.Inf. program for
registered nurses (offered remotely) and a program for licensed practical nurses.

In addition to this undergraduate training, students also have the opportunity to study nursing at
the graduate level. The Maîtrise en sciences infirmières (MScInf) program, offered in French,
has several streams: nurse practitioner (clinical stream), advanced nursing practice
(course-based stream), thesis (research stream) and post-nurse practitioner certificate
(course-based stream). All streams of the M.Sc.Inf. program are offered through distance
education, with the exception of on-site requirements for the Nurse Practitioner program. The
School also offers a new master’s degree in Health Administration through distance education.
This new program has been designed to meet the needs not only of nurses, but also of other
healthcare professionals who have shifted to health administration. The School is proud to
contribute to the community by building capacity for advanced nursing practice in the North and
