Bachelor of Science in Nursing - Advanced Entry

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing - Advanced Entry (BSN-AE) program is a full time program for students who have already completed a baccalaureate degree and are looking for the opportunity to transition to the field of Nursing. The program prepares nursing students to work with individual, families and communities with varying health and health promotion needs across the lifespan.

Program courses are offered in a hybrid or online format, supported by practice experiences within healthcare agencies and communities. Nursing students will work with clients and healthcare providers across diverse settings in the healthcare system.

Students graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. 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).

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing - Advanced Entry program is guided by the British Columbia College of Nursing Professionals (BCCNP). To work as a registered nurse, graduates must meet the required competencies and standards set by the BCCNP. More information can be found on these sites:
