At the heart of healthcare

Use your caring and compassionate nature to help those in need as part of a vital, in-demand field. We’ve partnered with the University of Lethbridge to offer you a four-year collaborative degree in Bachelor of Nursing to get you the career of which you’ve always dreamed. You’ll start your journey here, where for the first two years, you’ll get a mixture of theory and practical learning. You’ll also be exposed to real-life situations through hands-on clinical experience and on human patient simulators in our Simulated Patient Health Environment for Research and Education (SPHERE) lab to put you at the heart of this exciting industry.

The Bachelor of Nursing program is right for you if you:

Nursing is a rewarding profession

As a healthcare professional, people will depend on you to provide quality, caring, evidence-based nursing care. Nursing is a profession that supports lifelong learning which is why we encourage students to take an active role in their learning under the careful guidance of an instructor. This will occur not only in the classroom but in our simulation labs and a variety of clinical practice areas including acute and long-term care, pediatric, maternity, community, mental health, and rural nursing. You will have the opportunity to work with a diverse population across the life span continuum.
