Message from the Dean of Nursing

Dean's Message

Welcome to the Sask Polytech School of Nursing website!

I feel very fortunate to lead the faculty and staff at Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s School of Nursing. This committed and dedicated group of professionals are truly student centred and work tirelessly to engage their students in an exciting, challenging and rewarding learning experience. We are very proud of our applied learning at Sask Polytech. Our simulation labs give students ample opportunity for hands on learning.

Our School of Nursing has over 54 years of experience in nursing education! We are proud of our graduates who practice each day in clinical, educational, research and leadership settings. Our graduates provide a high standard of care and service to their clients, patients, residents, families and communities they serve. 

The high demand for nursing professionals continues and with that demand comes so many great career opportunities.  A career in nursing will take you where you want to go.  Our graduates become registered nurses, nurse practitioners, registered psychiatric nurses, licenced practical nurses and continuing care assistants. We also have specialty certificates such as perioperative nursing, critical care nursing, re-entry to nursing and internationally educated nursing programs. We also offer the Bachelor of Psychiatric Nursing Degree Completion program – Sask Polytech’s first degree program. We are proud of our partnership with the University of Regina for the delivery of the Saskatchewan Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing program as well as a master’s program, the Collaborative Nurse Practitioner Program. 

It is an exciting time to be part of the School of Nursing!

Sincerely,

Christa MacLean, interim dean, School of Nursing
