“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.
