Distance Nursing

Welcome to Distance Nursing Studies at St. Francis Xavier University!

We are delighted that you have chosen St. Francis Xavier University as the provider of your undergraduate nursing education. StFX not only offers exceptional educational opportunities but also a unique sense of family among students and the institution.

The successful pursuit of professional education challenges motivation, self-discipline, and ability to make long-range plans. Carefully assess this challenge in relation to your other responsibilities and career goals. St. Francis Xavier University recognizes that returning to school is a significant decision which will have a tremendous impact on both your personal and professional lives. While the pursuit of a university education is challenging, it is also an incredibly rewarding experience.

As a program unit, we are committed to student-centered education in a social environment that respects the value and worth of each individual.
