For a complete description of the BScN degree program, see BScN (Collaborative). The After-Degree can also be taken as an Honors program. We also offer a BScN bilingual program and an RPN-to-BScN program.

A Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) degree is your pathway to becoming a Registered Nurse (RN), which opens doors to a variety of careers in nursing and beyond. The Faculty of Nursing at the University of Alberta is recognized as one of the top nursing schools in Canada — we are leaders in research and in practice, with many unique clinical placements available.
