Information for New Admits

Acceptance Confirmation:

Applicants must send a confirmation email to the Undergraduate Nursing Admissions Office if they wish to accept their offered seat. They also must confirm that they have read, understand and meet the required ARNNL Requisite Skills and Abilities for Entry-Level Registered Nurse Practice.

Course Registration and Orientation Information:

Once an accepted student has confirmed seat acceptance, the Nursing Site the student has been accepted to will send additional information on course registration and orientation. This information will be available before registration begins in July.

Any student admitted to the Program after July will be contacted by the specific Nursing Site once they are notified of the acceptance.

Additional critical requirements, coordinated by the Nursing Sites:

Once accepted to the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program, there are other critical requirements that must be met. These requirements must be completed by the deadline date listed in your Orientation Package. (The Nursing Sites, not the Undergraduate Nursing Admissions Office, coordinate these requirements.)

The critical requirememnts are as follows:

  • Certification of Standard First Aid and CPR at the health care provider/professional level (CPR-HCP)
  • Student Information Form
  • Immunization Records and Bloodwork, as required
  • Code of Conduct

All New Admits Should Register for Fall Semester Courses by the End of the First Week of August:

All new admits are strongly encouraged to register for Fall semester courses by the end of first week of August. If you have not registered by this time, you will be contacted to discuss your intention to register.

Non-Academic Complaint Policy & Procedures: 

Please note that students accepted to Memorial University Faculty of Nursing will follow the non-academic complaint policy and procedures of Memorial University. Students accepted to the Centre for Nursing Studies and Western Regional School of Nursing will follow the non-academic complaint policy and procedures at the Eastern and Western Health Authorities, respectively.

Clinical Placements:

Students may be required to attend clinical placements for “block” clinical courses outside of the city where they are enrolled for their nursing courses. “Block” clinical placements are those that involve full-time clinical placements, during which the student does not take classroom courses. Any travel and accommodation costs incurred during these placements will be the responsibility of the student.

Required Resources for Students:

Students are advised that specific resources (i.e. ATI) must be purchased for the program. ATI is an electronic resource, the cost of which is divided over the years of your program. In addition, textbooks (electronic or hard copies) are a requirement in the program and several may need to be purchased in Year 1 for use throughout the program.
