Program Details

Nursing (IEN)

School: York University
Faculty: Health
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Nursing/Registered Nurse (RN, ASN, BSN, MSN)
Description: The International Educated Nurse BScN program has been developed in response to the need for registered nurses educated outside of Canada to meet the requirements to obtain the Canadian credentials for employment in Ontario. York’s program allows students to build on the strengths they already have so they can more quickly obtain the Canadian credentials they need for employment in Ontario, Canada. We provide a program specifically designed to enhance the practice of internationally educated nurses to practice safely and competently within the Canadian context. In addition, the program provides professional mentoring opportunities which include support, clinical guidance, and the exploration of career choices. Graduates receive a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) degree in 20 months of concentrated and continuous six semesters. On completion of the program the student is qualified to write the Canadian Registered Nurses Exam.

Within the program, teachers and students are partners in a dynamic and responsive collaborative process of discovery. Through dialogue, modeling, practice, reflective thinking, and experiential group process, we create a diverse community of learners that encourages each student to find their own voice. We encourage you to question and critical think about conventional assumptions and practices and help you gain the insights and skills that will prepare you to contribute to the evolution of health care in Canada. Graduates of this and other programs in the School of Nursing at York will be well qualified in a wide range of nursing areas including institutional and community settings, public health promotion, education and program development in the rapidly growing health services and management sector. The program offers the building blocks that will prepare you to assume roles as practice leaders, educators and/or managers in Canada.
