Premier breaks ground on new TRU nursing building

Posted on April 9th, 2018

Nursing and health-care assistant students attending Thompson Rivers University (TRU) will soon get their education in a new state-of-art building using modern technology and equipment to prepare them to deliver health care that British Columbians count on.

“Helping people get the skills they need to fill nursing jobs is critical to public health care,” said Premier John Horgan.

“This new nursing building will give students more opportunities for hands-on learning, so they can finish their education and walk on to the job, ready to help people.”

Premier Horgan and Advanced Education, Skills and Training Minister Melanie Mark were joined by students, staff and faculty today to celebrate the ground breaking of the new Nursing and Population Health Building.

“The new facility will prepare our next generation of health-care professionals,” said Mark. “We know that nurses and health-care assistants are in-demand professions. The new building will help meet demand, while benefiting students, faculty and staff in a vibrant learning environment, that will prepare them for ‘real life’ health-care delivery.”
