Both Registered Nursing programs (University of Regina/Saskatchewan Polytechnic and University of Saskatchewan) offer the Post-Degree and Upper Year entry into the program. This allows students to apply if they have other nursing backgrounds (e.g. Licensed Practical Nursing) or have completed a baccalaureate degree in another field.
The University of Saskatchewan's Post-Degree Bachelor of Science in Nursing is an accelerated registered nursing pathway that allows students to fast track through the program within two years.
