Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing Coming Soon
Dec 9, 2016
A memorandum of agreement between La Cité universitaire francophone and the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Regina has been signed this Friday, December 9, 2016. The purpose is to create a bilingual nursing degree by 2018.
This bilingual SCBScN is the result of a successful partnership between La Cité and the Faculty of Nursing to give students the chance to become licensed, bilingual healthcare professionals. The bilingual program is expected to launch in the fall of 2018.
Half the courses will be offered in French, while the other half will be offered in English. The option will be available to a cohort of seven students.
Nursing courses at the University of Regina will be offered in part by three new, bilingual professors in the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Regina.
La Cité will actively partner to recruit students and promote the program throughout the province.
La Cité will also enable the program’s professors to conduct research in French through its Centre de recherché sur la francophonie en milieu minoritaire (CRFM).
