The Faculty of Nursing has developed a baccalaureate program that recognizes and values the knowledge and experience of practicing Registered Nurses. The learner-centred, process curriculum is designed to further the capacity of Registered Nursing practice in an ever-changing health care system.
The curriculum consists of a minimum of 33 credit hours in Nursing, and 12
credit hours from Arts, Science or a professional faculty (for a
total of 45 credit hours).
Students graduating with the minimum of 45 credit hours of coursework may be required to complete additional courses or pre-Master's study prior to entry to the graduate program in Nursing (Master of Nursing). For further information, contact the Graduate Program Assistant, Faculty of Nursing, (204) 474-6216.
Current students who were admitted prior to September 2002 may complete the requirements of the curriculum to which they were admitted, or the requirements of the current 45 credit hour curriculum.
Students may elect full-time or part-time study. A variety of community settings are utilized for clinical experience. Courses may be offered in late afternoons or evenings, during summer session and through distance education (correspondence) or internet-based study.
