The Bachelor of Science in Arctic Nursing Program, developed collaboratively between Nunavut Arctic College and Dalhousie University, is a four year program that focuses on nursing in Nunavut.

The degree is conferred by Dalhousie University. The program is designed to prepare graduates as entry-level practitioners to work in a variety of settings, to include: hospitals, long term care facilities and community based agencies. The curriculum emphasizes awareness and respect for Inuit culture and prepares nurses to be leaders in the health care system of Nunavut.

Graduates of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (Arctic Nursing ) program will have the necessary knowledge, judgment and skills to write the Canadian Registered Nurse Examination, and are then eligible for registration in any province or territory.
