A Brighter Tomorrow 
We learn more about the importance of health and education every day, and students of CBU’s School of Professional Studies are on the front lines. CBU has great relationships with the Nova Scotia Health Authority, the Cape Breton – Victoria Regional School Board and government departments. These relationships provide students with access to on-site practicums and training. This means you’ll receive more than just informative, in-class lectures—you’ll also get hands on experience. By participating in real-life working situations, CBU students graduate with the confidence they need to get the job done. It’s no wonder our Nursing grads experience an almost 100% graduate employment rate!

If you’ve always wanted to make a real difference in the world, CBU’s School of Professional Studies is the place for you. Whether you want to be hands-on in the operating room as a nurse, or educate the next generation as a teacher, CBU will help you make it Happen!
