We are celebrating 10 years of EAL student support in nursing!

Welcome to the English As An Additional Language (EAL) Website at MRU!


Mount Royal University located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada offers to their EAL nursing students a unique support program that addresses the whole student. Both academic and non-academic successes and challenges are championed here. This program features mentoring (both faculty and peer based), large group support meetings, individual support, academic aid and a newsletter tailored to this group. Our support program is an active area of academic inquiry and action-oriented research.

Founded in 2009, this program has helped dozens of students and faculty. EAL nursing students have found that combining the positive aspect of psychosocial support with aid in the academic area to be truly impactful to their learning.
