BC announces consolidation of Kelowna-region BSN at UBCO


The Government of British Columbia recently announced plans to consolidate Kelowna’s nursing education. Previously, the Bachelor of Nursing (BSN) program was delivered through both the University of British Columbia Okanagan and Okanagan College; effective September 2023, the BSN will only be offered through the university. This will reportedly allow Okanagan to expand its programming into other areas of healthcare education, including practical nursing and pharmacy technician training. “This shift, once fully approved, protects our robust program in the Okanagan at UBCO,” said Okanagan Provost and VP Academic Andrew Hay. “It also allows our institutions to continue working together to support even more students interested in careers in health professions.”
