Feature Story: Bilingual nursing program proposed
The joint nursing program offered by the University of Regina and Saskatchewan Polytechnic may provide classes in both French and English starting in September 2018. Seven students will be accepted into the bilingual option in the Saskatchewan Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing (SCBScN) program, pending federal approval. Classes will be offered half in French and half in English. A French immersion placement is also planned for the final year. The program will be a partnership between the Faculty of Nursing, La Cité universitaire francophone at the U of R and Saskatchewan Polytechnic.
