If you have successfully completed your Registered Practical Nursing (RPN) diploma from an approved program, hold a current RPN registration and are interested in pursuing a Nursing degree, this program is for you.
You will have the opportunity to enrich your knowledge in the sciences, nursing and additional disciplines, while being introduced to the latest in learning technologies to enhance your success as a working professional.
We have approximately 50 partner sites for clinical placements ranging from hospitals (such as maternity/obstetrics, medical surgery, psychiatry and oncology) to public health and community health centres.
You must hold an approved Ontario college diploma (or equivalent) in Practical Nursing with a minimum A- average. In addition, you must hold a current certificate of competence with no restrictions from the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO). Applicants will also be assessed on professional practice skills with the completion of a Computer-Based Assessment for Sampling Personal Characteristics (CASPer). CASPer is an online screening tool designed to evaluate key personal and professional characteristics for successful students and graduates. Learn more on the Admissions website.
Note: Admission is competitive. The specific average or standing required for admission varies from year to year. Students are selected by taking into consideration a wide range of criteria including school marks, distribution of subjects taken, and performance in subjects relevant to the academic program. Possession of the minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance. Preference will be given to applicants with the best qualifications.
