Placements and practica at UNB


Our Education students are also teachers

Our students spend one day a week teaching in their own practica school as well as three blocks, ranging from two to eight weeks. We go beyond teaching future teachers; we’re giving them the opportunity to be ready for the job market.


Hands-on nursing experience starting in year one in Fredericton

Students gain hands-on clinical experience in their first year of nursing, which means they graduate with more clinical time, practice and one-on-one attention. 

On-site practical training at the province’s largest health care facility

At UNB Saint John, our students' classrooms are steps away from the Saint John Regional Hospital. They receive valuable real-world experience in clinical care practicums at the hospital and in the community.
