Collaborative nursing program in SK expands to North Battleford

November 1, 2017

A partnership between Saskatchewan Polytechnic, the University of Regina, Northwest College, and Prairie North Health Region has allowed the Saskatchewan Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing program to expand to North Battleford, SK. The expansion will allow up to 16 students from the North Battleford area to enter into the SCBScN program in Saskatoon and complete their fourth year in North Battleford. “We know that about 55% of SCBScN graduates find employment in the nursing units where they completed their practicum in year four,” says URegina Faculty of Nursing Dean david Gregory. “Providing the fourth year of the degree program in North Battleford ensures SCBScN graduates are well positioned to find employment in the Prairie North Health Region.” SaskPolytech
