DEVELOPING THE NEXT GENERATION OF COMPASSIONATE AND PROFESSIONAL NURSES
Nursing is a three-year program which blends classroom studies and nursing labs with clinical fieldwork in local hospitals and healthcare facilities.
Our mission is to develop graduates who are recognized as outstanding nurses providing compassionate and quality care, focusing on the unique needs of patients and their families. Students experience a variety of Francophone and Anglophone clinical settings, such as emergency, medical and surgical care, pediatrics, maternity, ambulatory care, mental health, and gerontology. A DEC in nursing will provide an opportunity to write the provincial licensing exam in order to begin employment as a registered nurse. Our graduates also have the opportunity to pursue continued studies in the DEC-BAC program with a university in Quebec, such as McGill University, University of Sherbrooke, and the University of Montreal.
Champlain College St-Lambert is located on the South Shore of Montreal, walking distance from Longueuil metro station.

“Champlain College is an excellent institution to pursue a DEC in nursing. Teachers are available for help and guidance, stage experiences are bilingual (which is important in the workplace), a wide variety of resources are available in the nursing labs and students are thoroughly prepared for the provincial nursing license exam. Champlain gave me the tools to receive acceptance to the top two university programs in the province and employment at a leading university affiliated hospital in my preferred field .” Cecilia Marti, 2015
“The nursing program at Champlain College strengthens an individual to enhance one’s determination to make a difference in the world. The program is designed to help you discover your inner “Super hero” that can better the world, by caring for one life at a time. The vital human aspect for today’s society is the lack of connection that we have for one another. It has been corrupted by media, false expectations and smart phones. Nursing, nourishes people at times of their lowest low and celebrates with people at times of their successes. Champlain nursing is just that; it gives you the foundation to grow as a person and directs you to become life altering nurses. The Champlain nursing program will help you discover your inner super hero, wearing simple blue scrubs and a stethoscope. ” Melissa de Castro Class 2015
