Admission Information




Applications will open in mid-October 2024 for Fall 2025 admissions. 


New for 2024: The CASPer test will NOT be required for the 2024 nursing admissions intake.  

New Tuition Deposit starting Fall 2021: Applicants who are successfully admitted into Nursing are now required to pay a $150 tuition deposit to confirm their seat in the program. Information about the tuition deposit can be found here. The tuition deposit must be paid in the Application Portal through your My Account page in the Decision History tab and then select Respond Now. 

Required Requisite Skills and Abilities for Nurse Practice:

Students thinking of a career in Nursing should review the required Requisite Skills and Abilities to ensure they meet all of them as they are the required guidelines for Nursing practice. All admitted students to the BScN Program must meet the CRNNL Requisite Skills and Abilities for Entry-Level Registered Nurse Practice in order to continue with their acceptance.

Priority for admission is given to residents of Newfoundland and Labrador, but we welcome applications from out of province and international students. 

Supporting Documents for your Application:

Supporting documents, like transcripts, must be emailed to the Memorial University Admissions Office:

Track receipt of your nursing application documents online in the same place you applied online:

Keep checking your online application for document updates. Please note that it takes time for the Registrar's Office to enter this information into the system, therefore keep checking the system regularly for updates.

Applicants applying to Memorial University as well as Nursing (i.e. high school students and non-Memorial students):

You will receive TWO SEPARATE ADMISSION DECISIONS: one from Memorial University and one from Nursing. Please read all letters you receive carefully. Applicants can be accepted to Memorial University and not accepted to Nursing. If applicants are not accepted to Memorial University they cannot be accepted into the BScN (Collaborative) program. 

Clause for Indigenous students:

Up to three seats per year are reserved in the Four-Year Option specifically for applicants of Indigenous ancestry who have met the admission requirements but are not in the top-ranked candidates. Applicants wishing to be considered under this clause must check the appropriate space provided on the BScN application form and provide documentation of Indigenous ancestry.

Nursing Admission Decisions will be E-MAILED:

Decisions are emailed to personal email accounts as well as MUNmail accounts: check the junk folder of your account as the admission decision email could go into that folder especially for Hotmail and GMAIL accounts. If you have not set up your MUNmail account, set it up and check it regularly. (NOTE: @grenfell accounts are only used if they are listed as the personal email account.) Nursing decision letters are usually sent between mid-April to mid-May. The exact date will vary each year. 

Waitlist numbers are not released:

If your nursing admission decision email indicated that you have been placed on the waitlist, then you remain on the waitlist until the first week of classes. If a seat becomes available for you, you will be contacted by the Nursing Admissions Office. We do not release information regarding your position on the waitlist. 

Admission Decisions cannot be deferred:

If you have been accepted but cannot begin the program in that admission cycle, you will have to decline your seat and apply again the following year and compete again for admission.

Communication Plan for Guidance Counsellors in Newfoundland and Labrador:

If you are an in-province Guidance Counsellor but do not receive emails from us, please let us know. These emails provide you with important information about the BScN (Collaborative) Program that you can pass on to your high school students. Approximately five emails will be sent: in October, December, January, late February and April once admission decisions are emailed.

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 the first week of August. If you have not registered by this time, you will be contacted to discuss your intention to register.
