Bachelor of Science in Nursing
The College of Nursing undergraduate program will appeal to those with a strong academic standing who possess an attitude of curiosity and inquiry with a genuine interest in caring for diverse people of all ages. College of Nursing graduates play a vital role in the healthcare system of Saskatchewan and beyond.
The first year will be a pre-professional year followed by three years of nursing education leading to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). The pre-professional first year is foundational to the nursing program and will include courses in the humanities, natural, social and health sciences.
Students in the program will be given the opportunity to engage in interprofessional scholarly learning experiences with students from medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nutrition, kinesiology, physical therapy, clinical psychology, and veterinary medicine in Saskatchewan and around the world.
The program will allow students to develop critical thinking skills and will prepare them to meet the diverse competencies of becoming a Registered Nurse (RN)*.
Part-time study is an option but all courses must be completed within six years of commencing the first nursing course.
* Note: To become eligible for licensure with the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses' Association (SRNA) graduates must pass a national licensure examination administered by the SRNA and pay the required licensure fees.
