Program Overview

The Trinity Western University Nursing program, established in 1993, offers a four-year baccalaureate in Nursing (BScN), within a Christian, liberal arts, context. The program is approved by the British Columbia College of Nursing Professionals and TWU is a member of the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing. The clinical experiences culminate in a final consolidation experience where students work alongside a nurse in practice. Students also have opportunities to work alongside faculty in the lab and in areas of research.

Further information about the program, including requirements and course descriptions is provided in the TWU Academic Calendar.

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.


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 Outreach.
