CBU’s Satellite BScN Program at Acadia

Equal Opportunity for Underrepresented Groups
Cape Breton University and the School of Nursing understand African Nova Scotian and L’nu Indigenous students have unique needs that often go unmet and are not candidly discussed. In an effort to close these gaps and relieve any barriers these students may face, nursing seats for African Nova Scotian students (ANS) and for L’nu Indigenous students have been designated to help enhance the diversity of our healthcare workforce.
For more information about support and resources available for African Nova Scotian and L’nu Indigenous students, please contact:
Dionne Romard, Student Development Officer, African Nova Scotian Students, email@example.com
Reann Arsenault, Student Development Officer, Program Coordinator Working with Nova Scotia Youth, firstname.lastname@example.org
