Bachelor of Nursing Program at the Medicine Hat College Site (BNOS)
The BN Program at the Medicine Hat College Site is a collaborative program offered entirely on the Medicine Hat College Site. It was developed jointly by the nursing faculty at the University of Calgary and Medicine Hat College in order to allow students in the Medicine Hat area increased access to a baccalaureate program without having to relocate.
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 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. The fourth year is fast-tracked in the Fall Session, allowing students to complete the BN program in three and one half years.
