“We really value George Brown students in our organization. They are very well prepared. They are ready to care for our patients, and they have that enthusiasm – that inquisitiveness to learn. We try to hire George Brown grads as they graduate, and then watch their transition into the professional socialization of nursing.”
Claire Mallette, RN, PhD,
Director of Nursing Education Placement & Development, University Health Network.
After you graduate
A career in nursing is highly marketable. Nurses work with individuals, groups, families, and communities representative of the entire continuum of health and illness across the entire lifespan from birth to death. Some of these client populations include newborns, new parents, school age children, the homeless, the elderly, and the acute and chronically ill.
