MacEwan University's BScN is a rigorous, four-year, 132 credit, degree program. Knowledge, concepts and theories are integrated from the discipline of nursing, the liberal arts and sciences. The curriculum is uniquely sequenced to promote integration and application of knowledge and diverse skills, such as writing, assessment, and critical thinking. Knowledge, skills and attributes are integrated within classroom, laboratory and practice settings.
The BScN program has two intakes per year:
- Fall Term (September)
- Winter Term (January)
Admission to the BScN program is competitive and the minimum admission standard (65% average) is NOT sufficient for a successful application. The academic profile required for a successful application varies between intake dates and years.
Limited space is available and not all applicants who are eligible may be admitted. As a competitive program, academic performance is the primary criterion for admission. The date of application is the secondary criteria for those who meet the competitive requirements.
