Emerging Priorities

Nursing Expansion

As the demand for nurses grew with the pandemic, Brock worked to accommodate the natural influx of students in the Nursing program and address the labour demand for nurses in our communities sooner. While launching Canada’s first accelerated concurrent Nursing program, Brock also worked to double the size of Nursing classes to support the growing need. With the growth of the Department of Nursing at Brock, comes transformational need and opportunity to support students, staff and faculty of the institution. By teaching our students using innovative spaces and equipment, we ensure that grads will continue to excel as health care leaders after graduation in Niagara and beyond.

Community Lecture Support

By introducing community lectures and webinars on topics that appeal to our students and community members, public discussions are used to raise awareness on important topics. These lectures also provide an opportunity for FAHS faculty, staff and students to learn from experts in the field and link theory to practice. Support is needed to fund these important lectures and ensure the continuation of shared, timely knowledge for our Faculty and community.
