50 Years of Nursing

Celebrating Half a Century of Regional Impact

We are proud to have been educating and training health care professionals for half a century! Over the past 50 years, Selkirk College has earned a reputation for excellence in nursing education in both the classroom and clinical settings. Our graduates are highly sought after by health care facilities throughout the country, and they are known for their knowledge, skill and compassion.

To celebrate this milestone, we are reflecting on the many accomplishments of our nursing graduates. If you are affiliated with our Nursing Program, please share any memories, photos or memorabilia you have from the last 50 years. We are hoping to hear from graduates of our program's inaugural year: the Class of 1973!

Share Your Memories!

We want to express our gratitude to everyone who has been a part of this journey. Thank you to our faculty and staff for their dedication and hard work, to our students for their passion and commitment, and to our partners for their support and collaboration. Here's to the next 50 years of nursing education and innovation!
