The College of Nursing undergraduate Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is for students with strong academic backgrounds, attitudes of curiosity and inquiry, as well as a genuine interest in caring for diverse people of all ages. Our graduates play a vital role in the healthcare system in Saskatchewan and beyond. The BSN program consists of a pre-professional year followed by three years of nursing education. The pre-professional year builds the foundation of the nursing program and includes courses in the humanities, natural, social and health sciences. Once admitted to the College of Nursing, students are given the opportunity to engage in interprofessional learning experiences with students from medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nutrition, kinesiology, physical therapy, clinical psychology and veterinary medicine in Saskatchewan and around the world. In years two through four, students develop critical thinking skills to prepare them to meet the diverse competencies required when becoming a Registered Nurse (RN). Part-time study in the BSN program is an option; however, all courses must be completed within six years of entering the College of Nursing. 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.
