As a result of COVID-19, the College of Nursing had to modify the intake of students into the May 2020 Post-Degree BSN program and cancel the May 2021 intake of the Post-Degree BSN program. We encourage students to continue to take these prerequisite courses and apply for the May 2022 Post-Degree intake or alternatively, apply to the full Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.

Program Overview

The purpose of the Post-Degree Bachelor of Science in Nursing (PDBSN) option is to recognize previous university achievements of qualified students and give them the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree in a shortened period of time. It is available to students who have completed a baccalaureate degree, or have made significant progress toward a degree in another field.

The option provides opportunity for full-time intensive study over six consecutive terms with program completion in less than two calendar years. Students graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from the University of Saskatchewan. After successful completion of the national licensure examination, graduates are eligible to apply for licensure with the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses' Association (SRNA).
