Note: Current immunization records are required prior to placement in a clinical or practice course. Students are responsible for all costs related to immunization. Failure to have acceptable immunization documentation at the time of placement or clinical practice course may jeopardize completion of the program.
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is a full time cohort program that prepares nursing students to work with individuals, families and communities with varying health and health promotion needs across diverse settings.
Caring and health promotion lay the foundation for the BSN curriculum. Nursing practice experiences are essential for the BSN program. Program courses and labs prepare nursing students to practice with clients in a wide variety of institutional and community settings.
Upon graduation, students will be eligible to apply for registration with the British Columbia College of Nursing Professionals (BCCNP) and to write the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) in order to become a practicing Registered Nurse.
Please Note: Prospective students need to complete Health Foundations in Year 1, prior to declaring into the BSN program. Once having completed Health Foundations in Year 1, students then need to declare their intent to complete either the BSN program, or the BPN program. Completion of Health Foundations does not guarantee entry to the nursing programs at KPU.
