Overview

Associate of Arts Degree (Health Studies)

NLC's Associate of Arts Degree (Health Studies) prepares students to enter health-related degree programs, emphasising the University of Northern British Columbia's Northern Baccalaureate Nursing Program. 

The two-year Associate Degree (Health Studies) provides broad coverage across the Arts and Sciences while introducing students to nursing as a career and meeting UNBC's core prerequisite requirements in: 

the social sciences, English, Indigenous studies, human anatomy and physiology, microbiology, psychology, and statistics.

Students who complete NLC's Associate of Arts Degree (Health Studies) with UNBC's grade requirements have an optimal transfer pathway into the Northern Baccalaureate Nursing Program and will be included among NLC students who have first claim to a designated number of seats each year. 

The partnership between NLC and UNBC enables prospective Registered Nurses to complete their post-secondary education in the north, for employment in the north.
