Throughout the program, students are provided with an extensive theoretical foundation and supervised practice experience in a variety of nursing settings.

Undergraduates of the UofC nursing program strive for excellence in meeting entry-level competencies as outlined by the College and Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CARNA) (2013) in five domains: professional responsibility/accountability; knowledge-based practice; ethical practice; service to the public; and self-regulation. They demonstrate professional and ethical decision-making behaviours as outlined by the Canadian Nurses Association Code of Ethics for Registered Nurses (2017). Students in the nursing program participate in the generation of disciplinary knowledge and are prepared to interpret, integrate and apply relevant knowledge from other fields to their practice on a continuum of active learning. Graduates are prepared to provide a strong voice in inter-professional, collaborative undertakings; use evidence-informed approaches and diverse ways of knowing to provide compassionate care.
