If you want to make a real difference in a specialized and challenging field of mental health, consider the Psychiatric Nursing program at Douglas College.
In the Psychiatric Nursing program, we offer a Bachelor of Science in Psychiatric Nursing (BSPN). After completion of the 10 university transfer courses (30 credits) and upon acceptance into the BSPN program, students complete an additional 3 years of full-time studies in Psychiatric Nursing.
A part-time degree completion pathway is also offered for registered psychiatric nurses who want to earn a Bachelor of Science in Psychiatric Nursing.
As a registered psychiatric nurse, your unique skills will qualify you for employment in many areas of health care, from psychiatric units in hospitals, to community mental health and addiction care settings.
For information about admission requirements, courses, intake dates and more, visit the Program and Course Catalogue. See Information Book.
The final intake of the Psychiatric Nursing Diploma program was in the Winter 2016 (January) semester. Applications to the program are now closed.
