High graduate success rates. Our nursing graduates consistently exceed Canada's average pass rate on national licensure examinations - and have gone on to build careers in patient and family centered care, education, research, leadership and management.
Relevant knowledge and skills. SIAST's commitment to job readiness means ensuring that your education is relevant to the workplace. That's why we have program advisory committees (PACs) for all our programs. PAC members range from nurses working in the field to government representatives in charge of policy. Their input helps us stay relevant and current with best practices, new technologies, educational innovations, regulatory requirements and work processes.
Exceptional job prospects. The need for nurses is growing. The need is not just provincial; it's national and even international. Your SIAST education makes you a sought-after commodity in this growing market. More than 85% of our graduates receive job offers either before or immediately following graduation, and 99% are employed five years after graduating.
Build your network. Empower your own success. Join Nursing The Future (NTF) and become part of a growing network of new nurses. NTF began right here in Saskatchewan. Today, it is a nation-wide, non-profit organization dedicated to guiding newly graduated nurses so you make the transition from nursing student to professional nurse.
Student employment services. SIAST Student Employment Services connect you to potential employers at career fairs, through on-campus employer visits and with postings of program-specific job opportunities.
"The Region welcomes SIAST nursing students to the workplace."
