Description:This program is an academic pathway offered to assist registered practical nurses (RPNS) bridge to BScN in approximately three years. Nurses taking this program may be: RNs who hold a certificate of registration in Ontario without evidence of current and safe clinical practice; RNs who hold a certificate of registration in Ontario and are currently practicing but would like to review their nursing knowledge and practice in an acute medical and surgical or mental health and community setting; Internationally-educated nurses who have not met the 2005 baccalaureate nursing education requirements for Ontario RNs; RPNs who hold a diploma from a community college of applied arts and technology (CAAT).

Curriculum is based on the College of Nurses’ Standards of Practice for Nursing and Entry to Practice Competencies for Ontario Registered Nurses. You will apply theoretical knowledge in clinical settings under the direction, facilitation and guidance of faculty. Courses emphasize ethics and professional practice, health assessment, skill mastery and caring for clients with acute and chronic illness and will provide the foundation for nursing practice. An exciting and unique aspect of the Bridging to University Nursing program is the focus on caring for individuals, groups and communities in both the acute mental health and community settings.
