In September 2021, Wainwright became home to a unique undergraduate nursing program, one that is centered on providing a world-class nursing education directly in the local community.
Alberta Health Services has partnered with the University of Calgary to offer the four-year Bachelor of Nursing (BN) program at the Wainwright Health Centre. Courses are offered online, with labs and clinical practice delivered in-person. This program gives individuals a unique opportunity to become trained health care professionals in their home town. The first cohort of eight students started in September 2021 and upon successful completion of their studies, will be awarded a Bachelor of Nursing degree from the University of Calgary.
Applications for the Fall 2022 semester must be submitted before March 1, 2022. Applicants must be residents of Alberta and live within 120 kms of Wainwright, AB. Grow your career with a world-class education in your community and find the opportunity to give back as a registered nurse.
