Bachelor of Nursing Program

The University of Calgary offers a flexible, innovative, Bachelor of Nursing degree to prepare students for the opportunities and challenges of a nursing career in a changing health care system. Throughout the program, students are provided with a sound theoretical base and supervised clinical experience in a variety of nursing practice settings. Two BN routes are available: a two-year Accelerated Track for degree holders and a three- to four-year Regular Track for high school and transfer students.

Combined Bachelor of Kinesiology (General)/Bachelor of Nursing (Regular Track Program)

This five-year program sponsored jointly by the Faculties of Kinesiology and Nursing (and administered by the Faculty of Nursing) leads to both the Bachelor of Kinesiology (General) and Bachelor of Nursing degrees.

Bachelor of Nursing Program at Medicine Hat College Site

The BN program at the Medicine Hat College Site is a collaborative program offered entirely on the Medicine Hat College Site. It was developed jointly by the nursing faculty at the University of Calgary and Medicine Hat College in order to allow students in the Medicine Hat area increased access to a baccalaureate program without having to relocate.

Post Diploma BN Program for Registered Nurses

The Post Diploma Bachelor of Nursing program is designed for persons who have completed a diploma nursing program in either a hospital school of nursing or a community college. To meet demands for flexible, accessible programming, the Post Diploma Bachelor of Nursing program is delivered exclusively though the Internet/World Wide Web.
