Saskatchewan Polytechnic and the University of Regina have identified the need to change the program delivery model for the Saskatchewan Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing (SCBScN) program in Swift Current. Starting in Fall 2017, students entering the first year SCBScN program will now take their first three years in either Regina or Saskatoon and complete their fourth year in Swift Current.
Great Plains College is committed to providing pathways for students interested in pursuing a career in Health Care.
Students that have applied to the SCBScN program for 2017-18 have the option to:
1) Attend the SCBScN program September 2017 in Regina or Saskatoon (spaces will be reserved for those accepted);
2) Stay in Swift Current, complete electives toward the SCBScN and start the program in Regina or Saskatoon in September 2018 (spaces will be reserved for those accepted into the 2017 cohort);
3) Apply to the Practical Nursing program at Great Plains College and, upon successful completion, subsequently apply for upper year admission into the SCBScN program at University of Regina. While entry into both programs is competitive, this option is available to any student.
4) Take 30 credit hours of pre-nursing university coursework in Swift Current and, upon successful completion, apply to the College of Nursing at the University of Saskatchewan for entry into the BSN degree. Application into the BSN program is competitive; as above, this option is available to any student.
