Admissions

Admission to the College of Nursing four year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) undergraduate program is non-direct entry.

The BSN planning sheet is a great resource for prospective students. Use it to track prerequisites and progress leading up to your application to the College of Nursing.

Admission Requirements

Students apply for admission into the second year of the Nursing program while completing the pre-professional course requirements.

Pre-Professional Year

The pre-professional year courses can be obtained through a variety of sources and locations in the province. While completing the pre-professional course requirements, students who are interested in pursuing U of S nursing at our sites in Saskatoon, Regina, Prince Albert, Yorkton, Ile-a-la-Crosse and La Ronge must apply to the College of Nursing for admission to second year of the four year BSN program.

Although the minimum required average in the pre-professional year is 60%, the actual admission average for second year may be higher depending on the number of competitive applicants who apply each year. Every effort will be made to accommodate qualified applicants.
