Current Memorial University of Newfoundland Students
Current Memorial University of Newfoundland students are required to submit a Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program admission application, including the self-appraisal and reference form, which must be from an ACADEMIC source. Transcripts are not required as they would already be on file.
The courses required for admission are:
- Biology 2201 and 3201 or equivalents
- Chemistry 3202 or equivalent
If both Biology 2201 AND 3201 and Chemistry 3202 have been successfully completed in high school, then biology and chemistry courses do not have to be completed at Memorial University of Newfoundland for admission into the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program. Additional course options are available by completing the non-nursing courses at Memorial University of Newfoundland.
If only one of the required biology courses was completed in high school, for example, Biology 3201, applicants MUST complete both Biology 1001 AND Biology 1002 at Memorial University as the biology courses must be completed as a pair - either two in high school or two at Memorial University.
If grade 12 Chemistry was not completed in high school, then the following chemistry courses offered at Memorial University can be used to satisfy the chemistry admission requirement for Nursing: Chemistry 1010, 1011, 1031, 1050, 1051, 1200, 1800, 1810 or 1001.
Admission averages are calculated by comparing the student's average from the last two semesters at Memorial University to the student's overall Memorial University of Newfoundland average. The higher average of the two is then used for admission into the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program.
To be competitive for admission: applicants should complete 8-10 courses in the last two semesters at Memorial University (Fall and Winter semesters) and obtain a 70% average and higher on those courses.
Admission averages are detemined by the degree GPA or overall GPA; the higher average of the two is used for admission. A mimumin degree GPA or overall GPA of a 3.0 on a 4 point scale is the normal cutoff for admission.
The required courses for admission into the Fast-Track Option, if a degree is completed, are:
- Biology 3053 or equivalent
- Biochemistry 1430 or equivalent
- Statistics 2500 or equivalent

NOTE: Admission decisons will be emailed by the first week of June to the applicant's @mun email account and to their personal email account. Make sure to check the junk mail folder as the email may end up in that folder.
