Educating Local Students to Become
Registered Nurses & Nurse Leaders
in Our Community
Learn Where You Live
The University of Saskatchewan College of Nursing strongly believes that students should be able to take quality nursing education, no matter where they live. The University of Saskatchewan supports the College of Nursing’s “Learn Where You Live” approach and understands it is important to offer nursing education in rural and remote areas of the province, where there are typically shortages of Registered Nurses and health care professionals.
By offering the complete undergraduate nursing program at Parkland College in Yorkton, students are able to remain in the community, be with their families, continue working during their studies, etc.
College of Nursing graduate programs are available for students living in the Sunrise Health Region using a variety of flexible and innovative distance learning tools, including lecture capture and video and web conferencing. Students who are given the opportunity to learn in their community will most likely stay in the community to work afterwards.
Educating Local Students to Become Registered Nurses
The first Bachelor of Science in Nursing graduates from the Yorkton site will complete the program in spring 2017. For those graduates who choose to stay and work in the Yorkton area, they will enter the Sunrise Health Region as Registered Nurses after completing the national licensure exam.
