4.2 Bachelor of Nursing Program at Medicine Hat College Site

The Bachelor of Nursing program at Medicine Hat College is a four year partnership program offered entirely at the Medicine Hat College site, allowing students in the Medicine Hat area increased access to a baccalaureate program without having to relocate. This innovative Bachelor of Nursing degree program prepares 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 practice experience in a variety of nursing settings.


Students will apply to enter the program in year one at Medicine Hat College. Upon successful completion of their first two years of the program and upon meeting the University of Calgary Faculty of Nursing admission criteria (minimum 2.00 GPA on the last 30 units or 5.0 full-course equivalents), students apply to enter the University of Calgary as third year students. The remaining courses will be completed as University of Calgary students at Medicine Hat College.
