About

The Bachelor of Science in Specialty Nursing - Critical Care - Combined Critical Care, Emergency Option at British Columbia Institute of Technology is the only degree program in British Columbia designed to prepare Registered Nurses for employment in specialty nursing practice.

Overview

Learners in the Bachelor of Science in Specialty Nursing - Critical Care - Combined Critical Care, Emergency Option program are Registered Nurses who are either seeking employment or are employed in one of the nursing specialties listed above. The program combines part-time distance study with practice-based clinical education. BCIT grants credit for previous experience and education through a variety of transfer credit, course challenge, and prior learning assessment procedures.

The collaborative efforts of the British Columbia Institute of Technology Nursing Specialties faculty, nursing curriculum consultants, employers, learners, practising nurses, and clients have developed the curriculum for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Specialty Nursing. The curriculum focuses on the technology of specialized nursing practice. Technology is broadly conceptualized as the knowledge, skills and attitudes that specialty nurses require in order to practice.

The curriculum also focuses on building partnerships. BCIT views both nursing and learning as relational endeavours in which communication and collaboration enhance the processes and outcomes of these endeavours. Partnership, therefore, is the context in which students learn and enact specialty knowledge, skills and attitudes.
