The Post-Degree B.S.N. option is not a separate program, but rather an option within the existing undergraduate program at the College of Nursing. The policies of the B.S.N. program apply to the Post-Degree B.S.N. option unless exceptions are identified. The purpose of the Post-Degree B.S.N. option is to recognize previous university achievements of qualified students and provide them with the opportunity to receive a B.S.N. in a shortened period of time. It is available to students who have completed a baccalaureate degree of at least 90 credit units from a post-secondary institution recognized by the University of Saskatchewan, or have made significant progress toward a degree (completed 90 credit units of recognized post-secondary study by April 30th of the year of their expected entrance date, with at least 36 credit units at the senior level. Senior level courses are defined as comparable to courses at the 200 level and beyond at the University of Saskatchewan). The option provides an opportunity for full-time intensive study with program completion in two calendar years. Students graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Saskatchewan. In order to be eligible for licensure with the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses’ Association (SRNA) graduates must pass a national licensure examination and pay the required fees. Effective 2015, in order to be eligible for licensure, graduates must pass a national council licensure examination (NCLEX) and pay the required fees.
