School of Nursing
Saskatchewan Polytechnic educated nurses are known for their high standards of practice, ethical behaviour, acceptance of diversity and skilful compassion. After all, they’ve been trained by the best. With 16 innovative programs, our school boasts 230 nationally recognized faculty and staff who’ll help prepare you for gratifying careers as registered nurses, nurse practitioners, registered psychiatric nurses, licensed practical nurses, diabetes educators and more.
Face time with faculty. Small class sizes afford plenty of one-to-one interaction with faculty. These experienced nurses and health-care practitioners go beyond textbooks to help you develop essential skills such as critical thinking, communicating and caring.
Prepare for real-life situations. Prior to clinical practice placements, you’ll build your confidence in simulation centres, complete with high-tech mannequins, hospital and assessment rooms, video cameras and control rooms.
Earn a degree. The Saskatchewan Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing program is offered jointly by Saskatchewan Polytechnic and the University of Regina and can be completed in three or four years. If you have a Psychiatric Nursing diploma, the Bachelor of Psychiatric Nursing degree completion program gives you the opportunity to earn a psychiatric nursing degree in as little as two years. Saskatchewan Polytechnic and the University of Regina offer the Collaborative Nurse Practitioner Program, which leads to the Master’s of Nursing (Nurse Practitioner) degree.
Flexible learning. We realize that on-campus programs aren’t always convenient. That’s why many of our programs and courses are offered through distance education and in communities throughout the province.
