In addition to the university-wide new student orientation provided by the UAlberta Students' Union (www.su.ualberta.ca/orientation), the Faculty of Nursing has a separate mandatory orientation for all new Nursing students.
Details about orientation are also included in a Welcome Letter you will receive via email (to your UAlberta email account) closer to the start date for your program. If you do not receive a Welcome Letter, please check your junk or spam mail folder first and then contact the Faculty of Nursing Undergraduate Office at (780) 492-5300 or email@example.com.
Students in the Camrose BScN-After Degree Program will receive a Welcome Package in the mail (to the address listed in your Bear Tracks). If you do not receive a Camrose Program Welcome Package or have any questions, please contact the Camrose After Degree Program Assistant at (780) 679-1508.
