Why study at the Faculty of Nursing

Class of 2020 in LRC

Memorial University's bachelor of science in nursing (BScN) (Collaborative) program is well-known for producing high-quality graduates who are sought after in this province, across the country and around the world.

Our BScN program is delivered at Memorial's Faculty of Nursing (MUNFON) and the Centre for Nursing Studies (CNS) in St. John's, and Western Regional School of Nursing (WRSON) in Corner Brook.

We work together to offer the same curricula, combining innovative teaching and learning strategies with hands-on clinical experiences. By the time they graduate, students will have over 1,600 hours of experience caring for patients in the clinical setting, which is among the highest number of clinical hours of any program in the country.

Cahill Sim RoomOur four-year BN option is offered at MUNFON and CNS in St. John's, and at WRSON in Corner Brook, with our three-year accelerated option offered at MUNFON and WRSON. Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) can apply to the LPN bridging admission option. Those who pass the spring bridging semester will progress into year two of the four-year BN option.

The BN (Collaborative) program is accredited by the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) and approved by the College of Registered Nurses of Newfoundland and Labrador (CRNNL).

Our master of nursing (MN) program options are offered on-line, with graduates moving into leadership roles as clinical nurse specialists and nurse practitioners in this province and beyond. Recently our NP option was awarded a gold-star seven-year approval by the CRNNL.

Our doctoral program in nursing prepares the next generation of nursing professors, scholars and researchers.

We are proud of the programs we offer, proud of the students we graduate, and privileged to have a role in their development.
