Dean of Nursing Update June 2022

Spring Greetings from Dean Dr. Solina Richter


Welcome to the University of Saskatchewan College of Nursing.

Spring is a time for new beginnings in Saskatchewan – grass begins to grow, flowers start to bloom, and for University of Saskatchewan (USask) nursing graduates, spring convocation marks the end of their time as students and the beginning of new career paths.

Spring is also a busy time in nursing. An opportunity to acknowledge all that nurses do and a final push for nursing students, as they complete spring term.

May 9th – 15th marked National Nursing Week in Canada, a week where we celebrate the nursing profession. Nurses are important, valued members of the healthcare team and make up the largest healthcare profession in the world. I share with you today my message from National Nursing Week.


June 9th was the University of Saskatchewan College of Nursing Spring Convocation. For the first time since 2019, we were able to come together with our graduates, their friends, and their families to celebrate this important milestone in-person. And what a day it was!

Myself, as well as College of Nursing faculty and staff, are incredibly proud of the 217 students who celebrated the completion of their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree and 16 students who commemorated the completion of their Master of Nursing (MN) degree.


It gives me great pleasure to welcome our new BSN graduates to the nursing profession. I have been a proud registered nurse for thirty eight years. I wish you the best of luck on your upcoming licensure exam. And for our MN graduates, I look forward to watching you apply your advanced nursing knowledge in your practice moving forward.
