Bachelor of Nursing

Practice based experiences in hospitals, community health organizations, and home care agencies allows students to apply skills and knowledge to real world situations.

The four-year Bachelor of Nursing program is a collaboration between Lethbridge College and the University of Lethbridge. Students spend their first two years at LC and their last two years at the U of L. Upon completion, graduates will be eligible to write the Canadian licensure exam to become a Registered Nurse (RN).
