The first cohort of 26 nursing students at Okanagan College are on their way to completing the first half of the four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing program offered at UBC's Okanagan campus. The new program was announced Oct. 7, at the official opening of Okanagan College’s new, state-of-the-art health simulation lab.

Students who successfully complete all courses in years one and two at Okanagan College will be fully prepared to transfer with guaranteed admission into the BSN program to complete the final two years of the program on the UBC campus in Kelowna.
