Program description - January 2022
A baccalaureate degree in nursing is the minimum requirement for nursing registration with the College of Nurses of Ontario. Conestoga College, Mohawk College and McMaster University are working together to meet this requirement. Through this consortium arrangement, Conestoga College offers nursing curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) degree. In preparation to pursuing a nursing career, we encourage all prospective nursing students to carefully consider the requisite skills and abilities for nursing practice in Ontario outlined by the College of Nurses of Ontario, as well as the essential requirements for study in baccalaureate nursing programs in Ontario from the Council of Ontario University Programs in Nursing. The Nursing Act requires that program graduates applying for Nurse Registration in Ontario must not have been convicted of: a criminal offence; or an offence under the Narcotic Control Act (Canada) or the Food and Drugs Act (Canada). In addition to the above, the Nursing Act also identifies a number of other abilities and requirements that must be met in order to practice nursing in the province of Ontario. Please see detailed information about these requirements at the following website: http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/regs/english/elaws_regs_940275_e.htm. The curriculum is planned for four academic years of full-time study. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will be awarded the BScN degree by McMaster University.
