Students Interested in Transferring from Another Nursing Program
Students who are interested in transferring into the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program at Memorial University of Newfoundland from another nursing program must submit an application by the March 1 deadline and must also meet the admission/readmission requirements for Memorial University of Newfoundland.
Interested students must also meet all admission requirements to either the Four-Year Option or the Fast-Track Option for which they applying.
Once a student has been admitted to a Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program at Memorial University, a transfer credit evaluation will then be completed to determine if equivalent Memorial University of Newfoundland nursing course(s) and credit(s) may be awarded.
It is important to note that transferring into the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program from another nursing program can be a complicated and lengthy process.
Official transcript(s) and course descriptions and/or outlines of courses claimed for credit are required and should be sent directly to Memorial University of Newfoundland from the institution attended.
In order to allow sufficient time for evaluation, these documents should be received at least two months prior to the commencement of the registration period for the semester to which the applicant is seeking admission. It is the student's responsibility to provide the pertinent documents, and until they are received, the Office of the Registrar is unable to commence an evaluation or to advise students of their standing at this University.
It is important to note that applicants commonly do not receive transfer credit for many nursing courses at Memorial University. This is due to external nursing course objectives not matching exactly with the nursing course objectives at Memorial University. Due to this, if applicants are accepted, they often do not advance beyond Year 1 of our Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program.
