Memorial University's undergraduate bachelor of science of nursing (BScN) (Collaborative) program consistently rates as one of the best in the country.

So you've come to the right place to seek a high-quality nursing education that offers students among the highest number of clinical hours in Canada. Recently we acheived a full seven-year accreditation from the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN), which equals a gold-star rating, for the fourth consecutive time!

We accept over 350 students every year into the four-year option, and three-year accelerated option (AO) of the BScN (Collaborative) program.

Our four-year option is offered at six sites, two in St. John's at the Faculty of Nursing (FON) location on the St. John's Campus, and the Centre for Nursing Studies (CNS), Western Regional School of Nursing (WRSON) in Corner Brook on Grenfell Campus, and at new FON satellite sites in Gander, Grand Falls-Windsor, and Happy Valley-Goose Bay

The three-year Accelerated Option (AO) is for students with at least 60 credit hours of university level courses.

We are committed to providing high quality learning experiences in a supportive, collaborative environment. Students learn and practice essential nursing skills in labs like the Learning Resource Centre, and work in teams in spaces such as the Cahill Nursing Simulation Room to help prepare them for real-life clinical situations.
