The BCIT pediatric nursing specialty is the only one of its kind in Canada. We educate students from around the world, and our program is recognized at every Canadian hospital and university. Our program gives you the skills employers seek.
Pediatric nursing is dedicated to the health and care of young people, ranging from babies to teenagers. Children, as patients, have unique health care needs that require specialized knowledge and expertise in their growth, illness, and injury. Pediatric nurses also require excellent communication skills to provide a safe and supportive environment for young patients and their families.
The BCIT Nursing Specialty Bachelor of Science (BSN) is a combination of our advanced certificate program and our specific academic BSN courses. Choose to complete both concurrently or study in the order that works best for you.
