Not sure which area is right for you?

Do your research!  Watch videos that appeared in VCH News during nursing week a couple of years ago. Review the BCIT website to get more information about the program areas and learning objectives. Ask your colleagues who may have worked in other departments. Regardless of the specialty, the training is a major commitment, and we want you to be sure you’re heading in the right direction.
