The Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Lethbridge offers the Bachelor of Nursing and Bachelor of Nursing After Degree programs in collaboration with Lethbridge College. Students study theory and experience clinical practice in the areas of medical and surgery, long-term care and continuing care, paediatrics, maternity and child, labour and delivery, mental health, rural acute and community health.
Graduates are prepared to be caring holistic professionals who base their nursing practice on theoretical knowledge, evidence, and standards for nursing practice. Emphasis on cultural, social, and health issues —particularly related to rural, elderly, and aboriginal populations — are key components of the programs.
The programs provide the essential background to write the Canadian licensure exam to become a registered nurse (RN).
We also offer a Bachelor of Nursing After Degree program for applicants who have already completed an approved undergraduate degree. Learn more
You should also have a competitive average. Competitive average is calculated on five courses - four required high school courses indicated above plus one other 30-level course.
If you do not have the necessary high school courses for admission you can apply to the Nursing Preparation Program. It provides access to courses that can be used for admission towards the B.N. program as well as courses that will count towards the B.N. program, if admitted.
Due to the collaborative nature of the Bachelor of Nursing program, students pay tuition and fees to Lethbridge College for the first two years of the program, and to the University of Lethbridge for the final two years.
