Nursing Programs at SIAST

Nursing

Nursing careers are evolving in new and exciting directions - from hospitals to community clinics, from home care to family care, from mental health to occupational health, and from hands-on care to public education, administration and research.

Let SIAST open the door for you.

  • Choose from one of the most extensive portfolios of nursing and health programs - nursing degree, practical nursing, psychiatric nursing, nurse practitioner, critical care nursing, perioperative nursing, occupational health and safety practitioner, and more.
  • The new Saskatchewan Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing program is a powerful partnership between SIAST and the University of Regina - one that will prepare you for the future in health care.
  • Small class sizes mean more one-on-one interaction with faculty. High-tech simulation learning centres use near-life scenarios to give you hands-on practice. Clinical practice placements will take you and your new nursing skills into the real world.
  • Our student-centred focus sets you up for success - more than 85% of SIAST Nursing graduates get job offers either before or immediately following graduation. And we invite you to come back to lifelong learning with continuing education and distance learning opportunities.
