The two-year Fast Track option was first offered at Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John's, and at Western Regional School of Nursing in Corner Brook in 2002 as an accelerated degree program. Students in this program will graduate with a baccalaureate degree in nursing after completing six semesters of study in two years. The two years of study are taken over two full calendar years. There is only one limited break in each year of this program, at Christmas.
Our Fast Track program is described as intense and challenging. Students entering this program will have a high degree of motivation and commitment to learning. The Fast Track syllabus is geared to students with well-developed university-level study skills, who perform well in high-pressure situations.
Our Fast Track program turns out highly educated, motivated, and confident nurses, with the same high-caliber training as graduates of the four-year collaborative program.
