The BCIT Critical Care Nursing program has a reputation for delivering educational excellence. Our faculty is known for their commitment to students’ learning progress. They give you individual support and a high quality of learning to help you succeed.
We prepare you to care for patients who are seriously ill or injured and in failing health, and part of this care is supporting patients’ families who are going through a difficult time. It’s a demanding job. Our grads have the passion and commitment to take it on.
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.
