Undergraduate Programs and Their Admissions Requirements

Admission to undergraduate programs at the University of Alberta is competitive and subject to the availability of space.

BScN-Collaborative Program

The BScN-Collaborative Program is our largest BScN program and is primarily for high school graduates or those who have some postsecondary education. This program is "collaborative" because students can take the entire four years at the University of Alberta in Edmonton or at Red Deer College, Keyano College, or Grande Prairie Regional College.

BScN-Bilingual Program / Baccalauréat ès sciences infirmières (bilingue)

The BScN-Bilingual Program is primarily for bilingual high school graduates. Demonstrated knowledge of both English and French is essential. Il faut vraiment être bilingue pour étudier dans ce programme. This program is delivered in collaboration with Campus Saint-Jean and is funded in part by Health Canada and in part by the Province of Alberta.

BScN-Honors Program

The BScN-Honors Program is for a select group of high-achieving students drawn from the BScN-Collaborative and BScN-After Degree Programs. Students registered at the University of Alberta may apply for transfer to this program after Year 1 or Year 2 of the BScN-Collaborative Program or Year 1 of the BScN-After Degree Program. While providing the same clinical preparation as the BScN-Collaborative and BScN-After Degree Programs, the BScN-Honors Program provides opportunities to gain more in-depth knowledge in the area of research and to be mentored by a Faculty of Nursing researcher.

BScN-After Degree Program

The BScN-After Degree Program is for students who come to nursing with a recognized university degree in another field of study, and is offered both in Edmonton and in Camrose. 

Registered Psychiatric Nurse (RPN) to BScN Program

The RPN to BScN Program is for graduates of diploma psychiatric nursing programs to obtain a BScN.
