Upper Year Admission
Applicants who: have completed a practical nursing or psychiatric nursing program; are currently enrolled in another nursing program at another recognized post-secondary institution, or have completed 9 credit hours of nursing courses in any other recognized nursing program, should apply to the SCBScN program through the Upper Year admission.

Students admitted through the upper year admission category fill vacant seats in the upper years of the program. Therefore, there is no set number of seats available in any year and admission is based on the “fit” between courses required for an applicant’s program of study after evaluation of transfer credit and the availability of spots in the menu of courses required. Where two or more applicants “fit” into the same vacancy, applicants with the highest grade point average will be selected. Admission is dependent on available space and therefore is not guaranteed.

If you are an Internationally Educated Nurse who does not have a current Canadian practicing license (ie. LPN, RPN), you cannot apply as an Upper Year Nursing Admit. Please contact the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses’ Association (SRNA) for evaluation of your nursing education. http://www.srna.org
