Working While Attending School
You may wish to work part-time while attending the SCBScN program. However, the heavy workload of the program may make this challenging. In addition, some courses may require you to obtain your clinical practice experience in a location outside of Regina or Saskatoon or on a variety of days (including weekends) and times (including evenings), which could interfere with your work schedule. Students who need to work during their program are recommended to not apply for the August or December Exit options.
