Joint Bachelor Nursing

The Joint Bachelor Nursing (JBN) program is a four-year program offered in partnership with the University of Manitoba. Students are able to complete all four years of the program with University College of the North (UCN) at The Pas or Thompson campus. The JBN program offers a community-based approach to health care delivery with a focus on the health of northern people and the learning needs of its students.

Besides classroom instruction, UCN offers a variety of distance education delivery methods. Other partners provide courses on site by a variety of distance education initiatives including videoconferencing. Using distance delivery methods, courses can be taken on a part-time or full-time basis in a number of northern communities. Graduates are conferred with a Bachelor of Nursing degree (BN) from the University of Manitoba, and are eligible to write the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX) for registration with the College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba (CRNM).​
