TWU Nursing is recognized as a leader in faith-integrated education and is accredited by the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing. As a student in the TWU School of Nursing, you will experience transformative education that develops your intellectual, sociocultural, emotional, physical, and spiritual self.
Our nursing classes are small, clinical experiences in hospital, community, and simulation lab settings are varied, and graduates score highly on the professional certification exam (NCLEX).
You will study with professors who have received multiple teaching and research awards at university, provincial, and national levels. Your professors are also the authors of textbooks, chapters, and articles you will be reading.
Our Liberal Arts Foundations courses support holistic student development, while core courses in science, art, philosophy, language, religion, and society and culture encourage you to think biblically, critically, and ethically about the world. Nursing courses equip you to work collaboratively for the promotion, maintenance, and restoration of health. Throughout the program, we focus on concepts of covenantal caring, equity, person-centredness and quality of life, and global engagement.
UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM IN NURSING (BSN)
Nursing courses are sequential, which means first-year nursing and science courses must be successfully completed before you progress to courses designated for subsequent years. Through classroom, lab, and clinical instruction, you will be prepared in subjects ranging from nursing therapeutics to nursing research, health assessment to leadership theories, medical and surgical nursing to mental health, and maternity and pediatrics to elder care.
"The TWU nursing program gave me the preparation and I support I needed to have a successful and dynamic start to my nursing career. This education benefited both my practical and academic abilities, now resulting in progression to a Master's of Nursing and many future opportunities"
David G., '16
Our School of Nursing’s focus on global health and equity prepares our students as global citizens, attentive to health determinants and illness needs both locally and globally. Highlights include clinical placements in Indigenous communities and opportunities for engagement through global projects.
Graduates of our nursing program are highly sought-after and are prepared to work as registered nurses in hospitals and community-based health care settings. Our students also have the opportunity to continue their studies toward a Master of Science in Nursing degree.
