Cumberland College offers the pre-professional year of classes that lead into the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from the University of Saskatchewan. The pre-professional year is study at the post-secondary level consisting of 30 credit units of courses. A minimum weighted average of 60% in these courses is required for admission to Nursing. Admission to Year 2 of Nursing is competitive, therefore, the average for admission to Year 2 is normally higher than 60%.

The College of Nursing offers three years of nursing education that builds upon a pre-professional year leading to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.). Students in the pre-professional year study courses in the humanities, natural, social and health sciences all of which are foundational for the nursing program. The complete program is offered in Saskatoon, Regina, Prince Albert, Yorkton, and the north. Part-time study is an option, but all courses must be completed within six years of commencing the first nursing course.
