About Us

The need for leadership and innovation in nursing and health care continues to grow. York’s School of Nursing believes that every patient has a personal story. That’s why our unique client-centered teaching and learning approach respects patients’ values and choices about health and quality of life. At York, teachers and students are partners in a dynamic, collaborative process of discovery. Through dialogue, modeling, practice, reflective thinking and an experiential group process, we create a diverse community of learners that encourages each student to find his or her own voice. We encourage you to question conventional assumptions and practices as you gain the insights and skills to contribute to the future development of Canada’s health care system.
