Rural Registered Nursing Degree Program

Wainwright Graduate Nursing Program

Become a registered nurse in your community

In September 2021, Wainwright will become 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 provide a Baccalaureate in Nursing (B.N.) degree program at the Wainwright Health Centre. This program gives individuals the unique opportunity to become trained health care professionals right in their home town.

Eight candidates will be selected as part of this pilot program, with a graduation target of 2025.

Applicants must apply by April 30, 2021.

To be selected, you must live within 120 kilometers of Wainwright, Alberta.
