Seven Generations Education Institute (SGEI) and Lakehead University (LU) have joined forces and plan to deliver the Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) program at the Kenora, Fort Frances, Sioux Lookout and Dryden SGEI campuses in the fall of 2020.
This four year program is designed to equip students with the necessary skills needed to attain a nursing degree and realize their dreams in becoming a licensed registered nurse.
SGEI recognizes three educational pathways into the BScN program:
- All Nation Nurses Entry Program (ANNEP) Graduates
Graduates of the All Nation Nurses Entry Program (ANNEP) have the pre-requisites needed for entry.
- Secondary School Graduates
Applicants of the BScN program must have the following
• Completion of OSSD

• Grade 12 U Biology
• Grade 12 U Chemistry
• Grade 12 U Math
• 2 additional Grade 12 U or M Credits
- Registered Practical Nurses
RPN graduates in good standing with the College of Nurses of Ontario and a minimum overall aver-age of 70% can be directly admitted into the BScN program and can be considered for the following transfer credits:
• NURS 1512 – Relational Nursing Practice 2 (0.5 credit)
• NURS 2511 – Relational Nursing Practice 3 (0.5 credit)
• HUMA 1_00 – Unspecified Humanities Elective (1.0 credit)

- The provision of the nursing social science and science courses necessary to obtain a degree in nursing and to write the National Canadian Nursing Exam.
- A variety of clinical placements in acute and community health care settings that allow the student to successfully transfer theoretical knowledge into practice hence experiencing many responsibilities of a registered nurse.
The collaborative BScN program will be delivered using immersive telepresence classrooms and in-house instruction.
Immersive telepresence classrooms provide high-quality classroom delivery over video.
The classrooms’ HD video, audio and con-tent-sharing capabilities enable instructors, staff and students to interact between two or more locations more naturally and effectively than traditional video conferencing.
Small class sizes facilitate a close and interactive student experience providing undergraduate students with opportunities to easily acquaint themselves and learn from each other.
