BN Program Information
The Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program offered at Memorial University, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, is renowned. This is evident by its accreditation status. The Program is accredited by the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN). This seven-year accreditation award is the highest that can be earned by Schools of Nursing in Canada. In addition, all three Nursing schools have been approved by the College of Registered Nurses of Newfoundland and Labrador (CRNNL).
There are three independent schools of Nursing: Memorial University Faculty of Nursing (MUNFON) and Centre for Nursing Studies (CNS) both in St. John's; and Western Regional School of Nursing (WRSON) in Corner Brook. These schools work together under the Consortium Agreement to collaborate and to offer the same Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program; therefore each school is a site in which the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program is offered.
Admission to the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program (Four-Year Option, Accelerated Option and LPN Bridging Option) is very competitive and is coordinated through the Undergraduate Nursing Admissions Office.
