Published: June 15, 2012

Nursing may be a female dominated profession, but as 41 men graduate today from the McMaster Mohawk Conestoga Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) program, the landscape is changing.

The BScN degrees were awarded at the McMaster University ceremony at 9:30 a.m. at Hamilton Place.

The men were among 445 fellow graduates from the nursing program.

In addition, five PhD and three master's nursing students received graduate degrees. Graduates in medical radiation sciences also received their degrees at this ceremony.

An honorary Doctor of Science degree was conferred on Nancy Edwards, a professor with the University of Ottawa's School of Nursing and Department of Epidemiology and Community Medicine; director of the Community Health Research Unit; principal scientist, Institute of Population Health; and senior scientist, √Člisabeth Bruy√®re Research Institute.
