Saskatchewan Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing (SCBScN) - Bilingual Option

 A program offered jointly by the University of Regina's Faculty of Nursing and Saskatchewan Polytechnic, in partnership with La Cité universitaire francophone.

 

              

Are you bilingual and passionate about healthcare? You now have the option to study in French in the Saskatchewan Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing (SCBScN) program. 

The program will be offered in a bilingual format: half of the courses are offered in French and half in English.

Complete half your degree in French

For the fall of 2018, seven places will be reserved for bilingual students in the anglophone cohort of the four-year bachelor’s program in Regina.

How does this program differ from the English-language program? 

Several nursing courses (CNUR), the required Indigenous Studies (INDG 100) and Statistics (STAT 100) courses, and some elective courses are offered in French.

  • The ENGL 100 required course has been replaced by FRN 352
  • Special access to scholarships, including the Canadian Heritage scholarship of $500 per term (based on a minimum 9 credits per term) 
  • The program’s fourth-year internship is performed in a Francophone or bilingual environment 

Advantages:

  • Benefit from smaller classes and closer relationships with teaching faculty 
  • Improve your language and communications skills 
  • Expand your career and travel options
  • Take advantage of scholarships offered for studies in French 
  • Access numerous services and resources in French provided free by La Cité 

More information in English is available from the Faculty of Nursing.
