Priority for admission is given to applicants who are residents of Newfoundland and Labrador. Due to this admission priority, there are few international applicants admitted to the Program, Four Year and Fast-Track Option, each year.
To be considered a strong international applicant, it is advisable that international applicants have a health care background along with the required courses for admission.
If international applicants do have a health care background, they must meet all admission requirements to the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program and Memorial University of Newfoundland, as well as submit all required documents by the March 1 deadline.
If international applicants applying to the Four-Year Program do not have a health care background, it is strongly advised that they take courses at Memorial University of Newfoundland for two semesters before applying to the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program. During the two semesters of study at Memorial University of Newfoundland, applicants should complete the required courses for admission into the Four-Year Program: Biology 1001, Biology 1002 and Chemistry 1010.
It is advisable that students complete eight to ten courses, in the most recent two semesters at Memorial University of Newfoundland, for admission into the Program. Therefore, in addition to the required Biology 1001, Biology 1002 and Chemistry 1010, applicants can complete the non-nursing courses.
International applicants applying to the Fast-Track Option should have an undergraduate degree completed, preferably in a health care area, and have the three required courses completed: Biology 3053, Biochemistry 1430 and Statistics 2500, or their equivalents. Please note: due to the intense pace of the Fast-Track Option, it is strongly advised that international applicants apply to the Four-Year Program.
