employers say...
 “We are very impressed with Nipissing’s Education Career Fair and the quality of graduates from the Schulich School of Education. The students are always well
   prepared, have strong resumes, and are interested in learning more about what the OCDSB has to offer. Over the last couple of years, the number of new teacher
   positions at the OCDSB has grown and we are continuing to add teaching positions. We have traditionally enjoyed great success with Nipissing University graduates.”

 “Nipissing’s Education Career Fair is extremely well organized and thoughtfully designed. The students are well organized, they ask smart questions, look professional
  and have given some thought to what they want in their career. We work with a lot of First Nations communities and the Nipissing students are prepared and
  knowledgeable about Indigenous education. It’s wonderful to meet future teachers who are so well-informed and open to working in the North.”

     Supportive professors + small classes

              Students just like you choose Nipissing because
              of its friendly atmosphere and commitment to
              providing a personalized undergrad experience.
              You will benefit from small class sizes, access to
              supportive professors, and if you are interested, the
              opportunity to assist with faculty research as an
              undergrad student. University is so much more than
              classes, books, and studies, though. You will decide
              what shape your life will take, and will have easy
              access to all the support systems you need. You may
              be most surprised by the amount of learning that
              happens outside the classroom.

Nursing student earns
humanitarian award
Chante Ellis, a nursing student in Nipissing’s Scholar Practitioner Program, has
earned a prestigious 2018 Sopman Humanitarian Award from the University Health
Network. Ellis is one of 14 nursing students at the University Health Network that
was nominated. She is in her first year of the 2-year Scholar Practitioner Program,
an innovative second degree nursing program for university graduates looking to
pursue nursing at the bachelor of science level.

“When I learned about the award, I was definitely in shock, then felt extreme
gratitude that my professor and preceptor recognized my ability to provide
compassionate care in practice,” said Ellis. “Awards that commend student nurses are
invaluable because they encourage the development of exceptional future nurses.”

The awards were established by the Sopman family nearly four decades ago to
recognize emerging physicians, surgeons and nurses who, in addition to their
academic and clinical excellence, have demonstrated profound compassion toward
their patients and colleagues.

                                                                                      Every year The Office of Indigenous Initiatives co-hosts a

Turning ideas into reality
For award winning business student Jeremy Butterworth, the Introduction to Entrepreneurship course he took in 2017
instantly helped him realize his dreams. The third-year student turned his course-work into a full-fledged business
opportunity, with external funding allowing him to make a reality out of his idea for a fitness-based app, named Flex.

“My professors were incredibly helpful in pushing me to flesh out all aspects of the business plan, including financial
forecasting and competitor analysis. They really helped me synthesize the plan to become a professional product, and
also helped me to find grants that were available for young entrepreneurs. I highly recommend this course to any
students interested in entrepreneurship.”

Jeremy is now working with a company to develop the app and is planning to launch Flex this year.
