Saskatchewan is a vast and beautiful land located in the heart of North America, spanning six Treaty territories and numerous First Nations, and the homeland of the Métis.

Whether you are exploring the badlands in the Southwest, the rolling prairies in the Southeast, or the forests from the central region up to the northern border (with thousands of lakes and rivers throughout!), as the “Land of the Living Skies”, Saskatchewan offers breath-taking horizons and vistas.

Saskatchewan is home to 19 national parks and historic sites, 39 provincial parks and historic sites, and 75 accredited regional parks that will inspire the adventurer within!

The College of Nursing is housed within 3 University of Saskatchewan campuses and at 3 partner sites across Saskatchewan.

The University of Saskatchewan campus is on Treaty 6 territory in Saskatoon. Culturally diverse and the host of numerous acclaimed arts and culture festivals, Saskatoon is home to the Remai Modern, a museum of modern and contemporary art, and the most comprehensive collection of linocuts by Pablo Picasso.

Just outside of Saskatoon, you will find Wanuskewin, a global centre of excellence in fostering education and respect for the land based on expressions of Indigenous culture, heritage, and arts.

The Regina campus is located in the provincial capital city and is the closest city to the centre of North America! Regina is home to the CFL Saskatchewan Roughriders (with Canada’s proudest and most enthusiastic fans!), the RCMP Training Depot, the Saskatchewan Science Centre, and Wascana Lake (a recreational hotspot!).

Last, but certainly not least, is the Prince Albert campus. Prince Albert is the “Gateway to the North” and offers access to world-class fishing, hunting, and outdoor adventure. The stunning Prince Albert National Park and Elk Ridge Resort are located only a minutes' drive away from this welcoming city.
