Welcome to BCIT
Different than a college or university, the British Columbia Institute of Technology offers practical, applied education with instructors who have direct, hands-on experience in their field.
Inspiring a bold new chapter
The largest initiative in our 50 year history, we are transforming the BCIT campus into a dynamic new learning environment where solutions to our most urgent challenges are born, tested and readied for the world.
The value of clinical experience for BCIT Nursing students
Just as Christina Dixon was getting ready to finish her preceptorship and graduate from the Nursing program at BCIT, the global pandemic led to nationwide lockdowns.
Thankfully, the instructors and staff at BCIT responded immediately. BCIT provided Christina and her cohort with several options to continue their learning and also preparing them for the possibility of encountering patients with COVID-19.
“Clinical experience is the bread and butter of nursing, especially if you’re feeling skill-ready,” Christina says. “BCIT is known for some of the highest quality theory-based pathophysiology and critical thinking training in the field. And then when you have the practical skills to back it up, you feel so much better when you get out there.”
