Teaching and learning are viewed as mutual and parallel processes, being influenced by beliefs, intentions, and capacities of both teachers and learners. Teaching and learning abilities are further developed according to mutually agreed upon learning outcomes and intentions.

Statement for prior learning assessment
Prior Learning and Assessment Recognition is a way for students with applicable academic experience to apply that knowledge toward earning credits without taking additional classes. If you believe that you have applicable prior academic experience, please contact the program directly:
Please note that BCIT's PLAR website mentions credit for work experience. However, courses within the NSSC BSN degree program are theory courses and therefore only comparable academic experience may be applied.
Course Schedule and Assignments
Refer to your course-specific delivery schedule.
Any student who needs special assistance in the event of a medical emergency or building evacuation (either because of a disability or for any other reason) should promptly inform their course instructor(s) and Accessibility Services of their personal circumstances.
