Students applying to nursing next year

Students who plan on applying to the bachelor of nursing (collaborative) program in the following year, must complete the required biology and/or chemistry courses if they have not completed the required high school courses.

In addition, they may complete non-nursing courses which are required in the BN Program, but are not required for admission. These courses include:

  • six credit hours in an English critical reading and writing course
  • Psychology 1000
  • three credit hours in either sociology, anthropology or archaeology
  • three credit hours in Philosophy or Religious Studies 2610
  • Statistics 1510 or 2500 (or equivalent) or Education 2900 (Education 2900 is reserved for Education students. Students who have received credit for a minimum of 18 credit hours may be able to register for this course if space permits once the reserves are lifted.)
  • three credit hours in electives

Completion of these non-nursing courses does not guarantee acceptance into the BN Program. Students should seek advice from Academic Advising at Grenfell Campus prior to registering for required non-nursing courses.
