Dr. W. Dean Care,
Dean and Professor
Faculty of Health Studies

Welcome to the Faculty of Health Studies website. We are proud of the history of nursing and psychiatric nursing education at Brandon University. We offer several options for degree completion. Our students receive outstanding clinical and theoretical education and graduate as accomplished nursing professionals, ready for a dynamic and rewarding career. Our graduates are well positioned to make meaningful contributions to society and health care through their practice with individuals, families, and communities and they have strong success with employment upon completion of their programs. Many of our graduates have continued their careers in the hospital, in the community, in nursing education or administration, some conduct research, and others contribute to health care policy. Our graduates work in every aspect and at every level of health care.

In this knowledge-based age, higher education is becoming increasingly important to our prosperity, culture, and our quality of life. At the Faculty of Health Studies, we are proud to offer small sized classes, technologically enhanced education, and individualized attention that will serve the needs of our diverse student population. Our students are guided through experiences that require self-awareness, commitment, reflection, critical thinking, and teamwork. Through varied and rich learning experiences, students gain the competencies necessary to enter their chosen career pathway.

I invite you to stay closely connected to our website to learn more about the exciting happenings, events, and plans for the future.  Please check out our Strategic Plan (2014-2019) .
