The Langara College Faculty of Nursing offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program which equips students with the broad base of knowledge and skills necessary to provide professional nursing care in an increasingly complex health care system. The curriculum is reviewed regularly to ensure it is informed by new developments and trends in health care and nursing education.
The purpose of the BSN Program is to provide graduates with a broad base of knowledge, attitudes, skills, and abilities. This will prepare them to provide professional nursing services to clients who have a full range of complex health challenges and also to work effectively in rapidly changing and diverse practice environments. The Langara College BSN Program is designed to educate nurses to work with individuals, families, and communities from a caring and health-promotion perspective.
Upon successful completion of all the Program requirements, leading to a BSN degree, graduates are eligible to write the registration exam to become a Registered Nurse in Canada.
The BSN Program has two intakes of students per year (Fall [September] and Spring [January]) and consists of nine semesters. All semesters are consecutive; there is, therefore, no time off during the program. However, there are college breaks of approximately two weeks duration between semesters as well as time off for Statutory Holidays.
The Nursing education programs at Langara College are recognized by the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia (CRNBC). Additionally, the Langara School of Nursing has been given the maximum length of accreditation (seven years) by the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing.
The language of education in the School of Nursing is English. A high level of understanding and functionality is essential for safe client care in all areas where health care professionals work in British Columbia. Good writing ability is a requirement for these programs. In addition, a foundational understanding of mathematics including decimals, fractions, and metric conversions is also essential.
