Students may complete the first year at Lakeland College and then apply to transfer to the U of S. The pre-professional year will be foundational to the nursing program and will include courses in the humanities, as well as the natural, social and health sciences. Students will be given the opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary scholarly learning experiences typical of a general first year of arts and sciences.

First-year students at Lakeland College choose 30 credits from the following required courses:

  • BIOL 107
  • CHEM 101
  • ENGL 112 (See Note 1)
  • NS 110 or NS 111
  • NUTR 110
  • PSYCO 104/105
  • STAT 151 (See Note 2)
  • 3 credits open electives (excluding HEED 110)

Students must achieve a minimum weighted average of 60% in the required courses.

Note 1: ENGL 112 is a six-credit course, so it meets the three-credit English requirement at the U of S and fills a three-credit elective.

Note 2: The U of S requires only Math A30 and B30 (with Math C30 as recommended) for Saskatchewan students with the old mathematics curriculum. However, students beginning their studies at Lakeland College require Math C30 as a prerequisite for STAT 151. Under the new high school curriculum, Math 30-2 or Foundations of Math 30 is recommended for STAT 151.
