You’re invited to experience the School of Nursing’s new lab


Lakehead University’s School of Nursing is pleased to announce the grand opening of its newest lab in the Braun Building, located in BB 1022.

The Nursing Skills Lab is a 10-bed, hands-on learning space that provides students with opportunities to use mannequins and other equipment to practice nursing on as they learn assessment and skills theory and put it into practice.

Since 1965, the School has built capacity for nursing leadership in Northwestern Ontario and beyond.

With full national accreditation, Lakehead’s nursing curriculum includes theory, labs and simulations, and clinical experiences at every level from the moment students arrive on campus.

The School of Nursing continues to flourish with the addition of a graduate program – the Masters of Nursing - Nurse Practitioner [NP] and Advanced Nursing Practice [APN] streams added in 2021.

All are welcome to visit the new lab on Tuesday, March 14, between 10 am and 12:30 pm. There will also be a door prize!

The grand opening speeches and ribbon cutting will occur at 12:30 pm.

In the afternoon, the School of Nursing will host a recruitment event with high school students who will enjoy an immersive learning experience with a variety of nursing skills.
