The Faculty has planned the curriculum so that the study of nursing, the physiological, psychological and social sciences, and the humanities are interrelated and span the entire program. In Level I, the amount of nursing experience is relatively small; the major proportion of study is in the behavioural and natural sciences. The nursing component increases progressively through Levels II, III, and IV, as the study of natural sciences is completed. Because of timetable constraints, courses must be taken in the level indicated in the curriculum.

Requirements (EFFECTIVE AS OF 2020-2022)


Electives


Fifteen units of electives are to be selected from disciplines of the student’s choice, of which a minimum of six units are to be chosen from courses designated as Level II or above. A maximum of six units of electives may be selected from NURSING and/or HTHSCI elective courses (i.e. those courses that are not required for any of the program streams). For some courses, the amount of duplication of required content will preclude their being used for elective credit in the B.Sc.N. Program. Mandatory NURSING and/or HTHSCI courses from the Post Diploma R.P.N. (E) Stream or the Accelerated (F) Stream of the B.Sc.N. Program cannot be used toward elective requirements for the Basic (A) Stream.
