Acadia University gets $13.9M to build new nursing building

WOLFVILLE, N.S.—Acadia University is building a new nursing facility to enhance health care education and address shortages.

The Government of Nova Scotia is investing $13.9 million, which will go towards the construction of a modern facility that meets infrastructure requirements with dry lab clinic teaching spaces and simulation rooms.

Building on the launch of the Acadia campus satellite location for Cape Breton’s School of Nursing, this facility development helps Acadia University obtain full accreditation and approval of a permanent standalone program from the Nova Scotia College of Registered Nurses, states a release.

The current satellite program is set to graduate 42 nurses in 2026 and eventually reach an annual graduation of 63 nurses. Fifty per cent of nursing seats are dedicated to Mi’kmaq, Indigenous and African Nova Scotian students.

The School of Nursing expansion aligns with the province’s Action for Health plan, aimed at enhancing and transforming health care in Nova Scotia.
