Bachelor of Nursing Program at the Medicine Hat College Site (BNOS)

  • 4 Year Partnership Program
  • September Entry Only
  • Traditional September to April schedule with May to August free from coursework

The Bachelor of Nursing program at Medicine Hat College is a four year partnership program offered entirely at the Medicine Hat College site, allowing students in the Medicine Hat area increased access to a baccalaureate program without having to relocate. Effective Fall 2013, the curriculum offered at Medicine Hat College will be identical to that offered at the University of Calgary. This innovative Bachelor of Nursing degree program prepares students for the opportunities and challenges of a nursing career in a changing health care system. Throughout the program, students are provided with a sound theoretical base and supervised practice experience in a variety of nursing settings.

Admission Requirements

Students will apply to enter the program in year one at Medicine Hat College. Minimum admission requirements are Alberta Grade XII (or equivalent) English 30-1, Biology 30, Chemistry 30, Pure Mathematics 30 or Mathematics 30-1 or 30-2, and one other 30-level 5-credit subject with an overall minimum average of 65% and no grade lower than 50%. For adult admission, the fifth 5-credit subject is waived. Transfer students must present the matriculation subjects as noted above and a minimum 2.00 grade point average (on a 4-point scale) on their most recent University transferable coursework (up to five full course equivalents). Upon successful completion of the first two years of the program and upon meeting the University of Calgary Faculty of Nursing admission criteria (minimum 2.00 GPA on the last 5 full-course equivalents), students will apply to enter the University of Calgary as third year students. The remaining courses will be completed as University of Calgary students. The third and fourth year courses will be delivered on the Medicine Hat College Site with University of Calgary Faculty of Nursing Professors as Instructors of Record.

NOTE: Students enrolled at the Medicine Hat College Site, who wish to transfer to the Calgary Campus, must apply to the University of Calgary Bachelor of Nursing Degree Program. Admission will be based on the student’s grade point average and the availability of seats.
