Learning Council and Standing Committees
The Learning Council is responsible for the academic policy of the university college and for determining courses or programs to be offered; setting criteria for admissions, examinations, student evaluations, development and course/program evaluation; determining degrees, certificates, and diplomas to be granted; establishing faculties, internal disciplinary jurisdiction; establishing procedures for appeals process; and curriculum development.
The activities of the Learning Council are conducted by the following standing committees: Research and Scholarship, Academic Planning, Awards, Academic Policy, Equity, Nominations, Library, Curriculum, Appeals, Executive, and Academic Standards; many of which have nursing faculty and students as members.
While it is recognized that the nursing program is rigorous and requires a significant investment of your time, student involvement on the Learning Council and Standing Committees is encouraged and supported by the nursing faculty. Student input is invaluable to the committees and provides the student body with a voice. In addition, a history of committee involvement is viewed positively when applications for bursaries are reviewed and Curriculum Vitaes for employment are submitted.

The NSA board is comprised of nursing students in good standing who have been nominated and elected by the nursing student body.
