The Keyano College Nursing department in collaboration with the University of Alberta Faculty Of Nursing offers a four-year baccalaureate program at Keyano College. The program begins with admission to Keyano College in Year 1 as a student in the University of Alberta Collaborative Baccalaureate Nursing Program with Keyano. For the first three years you are registered as a Keyano student. During Year 3 you apply for official admission to the University of Alberta for your fourth year. As long as you meet the criteria, you continue at Keyano College to complete your 4th year.
Students will receive clinical nursing experience each term, in a variety of settings (including community and institutional experiences). In addition to working days, students may be required to work some evening, nights and weekend shifts in the clinical settings
Students will have two opportunities to pass the Medication Administration Safety Screening (MASS) exam at the beginning of each clinical course. Failure to pass the MASS exam at the beginning of a clinical course will require students to delete their registration in the clinical course.
After completing year 4, you will convocate from the University of Alberta with a BScN. As a graduate, you will be eligible to write the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX). This is required for license to practice in Alberta as a registered nurse (RN).
