What you study
Our bachelor of nursing (collaborative) program has been designed to prepare nurses to practise in the rapidly-changing health care system.
More and more often today, health officials see health promotion as the most cost-effective way of serving their populations. We introduce health promotion in the first year of the curriculum, and expect our students to develop more knowledge and skills in this area throughout their studies.
We're proud of the leadership and professional development skills our nursing degree encourages in our students. As nurses move increasingly to the forefront of the health care professions, graduates with communication and other related skills are increasingly in demand.
Our extended practice is another highlight of the program. Potential employers, here and elsewhere in the world, appreciate the practical experience of our graduates.
The degree requires the completion of 43 courses. The 31 nursing courses are offered at the schools of nursing; the 12 other courses are provided by academic departments at Memorial University's campuses in St. John's and Corner Brook.
