About us

BCIT has offered advanced level programs to health professionals and mid-career learners for over 20 years. Several of our courses are required in BCIT’s clinical programs such as Nursing and Medical Radiation Technologies, and in several BCIT management programs. Graduates successfully proceed to advance their careers in the health sector and some build on their BCIT education by entering into graduate level programs, such as those at the University of British Columbia, University of Victoria, Athabasca University, and Royal Roads University. Our specialized programs are known across Canada for their flexible online approach designed for adult learners.

As I worked my way through the program, my career continued to evolve and I was able to better support my clients and meet my department objectives. One of the unique aspects of the program was that it brought together others from our industry, at the local, provincial, national and international level. It was great to hear about issues and priorities in other regions — this was a learning experience in itself.
