Welcome to our Sprott Shaw Nanaimo College Campus! Our campus is located in the heart of downtown Nanaimo on beautiful Vancouver Island. We enjoy a forested mountain backdrop and are minutes from the popular Nanaimo seawalk and Swy-a-Lana Lagoon.
The Nanaimo, BC, Canada campus is an active part of our community through our yearly food drives, fundraisers, hiring fairs, parades and Vancouver Island Exhibition. We provide our students with many opportunities to network with employers through our Guest Speaker Series, semi-annual Careers in Healthcare event and practicum opportunities. It is our goal that you walk away with not just a diploma, but with an enriched experience that you will be proud of for the rest of your life!
For more information on the Nanaimo community and the wide range of outdoor and indoor activities available read our article “Things To Do In Nanaimo“.
Our graduates have enjoyed new options and employment opportunities within Vancouver Island, whether it is as a Health Care Assistant, Community Support Worker, Office Administrator, Medical Office Assistant, Pharmacy Assistant, Early Childhood Educator or Business Manager. We are proud of every last student who ‘rings that bell’ and would like to congratulate all who achieved their goals.
Student life can be fun and rewarding as well as productive! Holidays are celebrated, exceptional students and staff are recognized, accomplishments honored and games are played!
We would like to acknowledge and thank employers who assist our students in practicum and clinical placements. We appreciate our partnerships!
