UNBC launches Northern Baccalaureate Nursing Program

September 17, 2021
The University of Northern British Columbia has announced that it is launching a Northern Baccalaureate Nursing Program to provide people living in the North with local health care. The two-year bachelor of science program will be housed at UNBC’s space at Northern Lights College’s campus. It will be delivered in five consecutive semesters, and will include in-person instruction, online components, and clinical practicums in a variety of settings. “In the North, people deserve access to the high-quality, local care that the Northern Baccalaureate Nursing Program will provide in its graduates,” said BC Minister of Health Adrian Dix. “When students receive the best training on how to deliver care in northeastern communities, the people living in them will benefit from having access to health-care workers who understand their specific needs.” BC (BC )
