The Post-Diploma Baccalaureate Nursing Program is designed for RNs who have completed a Registered Nurse Diploma at a recognized post-secondary institution and want to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN). The curriculum is intended to build on previous learning, as well as expand nursing knowledge and skills. Students will learn from expert practitioners and have the opportunity to focus in a particular area of nursing practice such as Community Health Nursing, Rural Nursing, First Nations Health and Nursing, Acute Care Nursing, or Continuing Care Nursing.
The minimum requirement for completion of the Post-Diploma Baccalaureate Nursing Program is 45 credit hours; 24 credits must be in Nursing. Admission occurs annually in September and January.
