Description:The program is recognized by the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia (CRNBC).

Program courses are offered in a hybrid or blended course format through residencies at KPU, practice within health care agencies and communities, combined with distributed or online learning formats.

Through relational engagement, the program will assist students to develop sensitivity to people's experiences with health and healing. Students will learn to work as partners with clients and with other health care providers. Students learn to be independent, accountable, reflective, self-directed, self-motivated, and life-long learners with questioning minds and familiarity with inquiry approaches to learning. They make decisions for nursing practice based on multiple ways of knowing such as critical thinking, intuition, research, and evaluation. Students learn to create and influence the future of nursing practice at political, social, and professional levels by responding to and anticipating changing needs of society. Students complete seven academic semesters to graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree.
