Note for incoming students, 2020
Congratulations on being accepted into the BN (Collaborative) Program! We look forward to working with you and to getting to know you! These are unprecedented times and we are sure you have questions about starting your nursing program at this time. Please know that we are working to help you transition to your program and will be connecting with you periodically over the next few months.
In Memorial University’s communication for the Fall semester on May 12th, 2020, it stated that classes will be offered through remote delivery methods, but in the Faculty/Schools of Nursing there will be an exception. All classroom courses in nursing, for four-year and accelerated options, will be offered remotely in the fall 2020 semester. The exceptions are for clinical courses and some lab courses.
However, please note that we have moved a Year 1 course, NURS 1017 Fundamental Psychomotor Competencies, from the planned fall schedule to winter. Therefore, in your first semester of nursing (whether you are in the four-year or accelerated option) all courses will be through remote delivery.
This summer, Memorial University will offer resources to help students prepare for the fall semester. Watch for the University 101 websites and University 1010 course in particular. We will send information on these resources and others when the links are finalized.
We will be sending welcome packages and follow-up information over the coming weeks; this information will answer many of the questions you have as you prepare to begin your nursing education in the fall. Until then, take care and know we are working hard to make your start with us as smooth as possible.
