This four-year basic nursing education program replaced the basic nursing education programs in Newfoundland. Students graduate with a baccalaureate degree in nursing after completing four years of study.
Our program reflects the collaborative efforts of all three schools of nursing in Newfoundland - Memorial University of Newfoundland and Centre for Nursing Studies (both in St. John's) and Western Regional School of Nursing in Corner Brook.
We have combined the strengths of the diploma and degree programs with the latest theory and practical experience to produce our innovative program.
The BN advantage
The Canadian Nurses Association and its provincial and territorial counterparts agreed that, by the year 2000, everyone entering the profession should have a bachelor's degree in nursing. Our program ensures all Newfoundland and Labrador nursing graduates will now meet this goal.
This BN gives you the basics of nursing as well as additional studies in health promotion, nursing leadership, health assessment, research, and related academic areas. Your BN gives you many career and graduate study opportunities.
