WE’RE THE REAL DEAL
Northern College is one of only two publicly-funded colleges in Ontario that have an on-campus burn building that provides our students with real-world firefighting training.
Our state-of-the-art nursing labs and cutting-edge simulation equipment provide a variety of authentic health care scenarios to facilitate your transition into the clinical setting. Our on-site medical clinic at the Timmins Campus offers hands-on, practical experience.

A Pre-Health Science program is available to prepare you for a broad range of careers in health care and assists you in meeting the entrance requirements for the BScN, Practical Nursing and Paramedic programs. See page 68 for details.
The Firefighter to Paramedic Bridging program allows Pre-Service Firefighter Education and Training graduates to bridge into the Paramedic program and get an additional Primary Care Paramedic diploma in just three semesters.
After hearing how great Northern College's nursing program was...
I had high expectations and the faculty and program curriculum amazed me. For me, the Northern experience was hugely positive. The program exceeded my expectations and the college faculty and staff were so great and supportive - so much so, I felt the need to give back. I became involved with student council, tutored other students and even managed the college pub. The Second Career program gave me the opportunity for a fresh start. I am humbled and truly honoured to have the opportunity to share my experience with Northern College and Second Career with others. - Robert Cloutier, Practical Nursing program, Class of 2012 Valedictorian (Timmins Campus).
Northern College Faculty and staff put students first...
and always act in their best interest. They prepare you to be the candidate employers are looking for and teach you the true meaning of care.
Professors rejoice in the success of their students. Northern is a great college with caring employees. - John William, Practical Nursing program
