Nursing - Second Entry Preparation, Bachelor of


Ministry Title: Bachelor of Nursing - Second Entry Preparation

Preparatory Semester


Program Code: 09341

Campus: North

Length: N/A starting in September

With Canada’s aging population and growing needs in healthcare, nurses are more in-demand than ever. Fast track your career in nursing by using your previous university studies toward admittance to this program offered by Humber College in collaboration with the University of New Brunswick (UNB). While students in this program complete their studies at Humber in Toronto, they graduate with a Bachelor of Nursing from UNB, positioning them well for a career in healthcare. Our combination of theoretical and hands-on learning focuses on the various roles nurses can have in provincial, national and international placements in community/public health, primary healthcare or acute-care settings, and provides clinical experience necessary to successfully pursue employment in these environments.

Humber is the only English speaking college in Ontario with access to an on-campus cadaver lab for nursing students. Combine that with small class sizes, simulation labs, bioscience and anatomy labs, and clinical work placement opportunities -- Humber students have the competitive edge.

Courses

Current students, please make sure to review your MyHumber Academic Progress report to confirm which courses you should register into for your Fall semester. Courses with in-person requirements will likely also have online components. Humber may need to change plans for in-person learning, subject to government and public health directives and/or additional health and safety considerations.

Admission Requirements

Selection: Admission selection is based on the academic criteria indicated. Meeting minimum eligibility requirements does not guarantee admission.

The Bachelor of Nursing program is a full disclosure program. Applicants must disclose and provide academic transcripts for all course work completed at the postsecondary (college or university) level. Disclosure and documentation is required for all courses including those not leading to a completed credential, where credit was not granted, and where academic work was not related to the field of nursing. Failure to disclose previous postsecondary course work is considered an academic offence and can result in withdrawal from the program.

Admission selection is based on the following 3 requirements:

  • .

    Academic

    To be eligible for admission, you must possess the following:

    • A completed three- or four-year university degree with a 3.0 or 74 per cent grade point average (GPA) or higher. For applicants who have completed more than 60 credit hours, the admission average will be calculated on the most recent 60 credit hours of course work. The grades for all courses taken within an academic term will be included in this calculation, even if this results in exceeding the 60 credit hours requirement.
      Applicants who have not completed a three- or four-year university degree, but who possess 60 university credit hours with a 3.0 or 74 per cent GPA or higher, may also be considered for admission. All international credentials must be evaluated by an approved credential service, and must provide a course-by-course evaluation. All international postsecondary documents must be evaluated by World Education Services (WES) Canada.
