College of the Rockies in co-operation with local hospitals, health care agencies and community partners, offers the first five semesters and two consolidated practice experiences of the BSN programs.

While students are in the BSN program, they have the opportunity to join the Canadian Nursing Students’ Association (CNSA). CNSA is the national voice of Canadian nursing students. Their goal is to increase the legal, ethical, professional and educational aspects which are an integral part of nursing.
