About Nursing at University of Alberta

Why take the BScN after-degree program?

The After-Degree Program is for students who already hold a university degree.

As a university graduate — in any field of study — you have developed critical thinking and analytical skills, additional education and career skills, and life experience, all of which makes you an excellent candidate for this program, and for a career in nursing!

For a complete description of the BScN degree program, see BScN (Collaborative).

The After-Degree can also be taken as an Honors program.

We also offer a BScN bilingual program and an RPN-to-BScN program.
