A Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) prepares graduates who are committed to excellence in professional practice and who will contribute to the health and well-being of individuals, families, communities and society. Graduates of this program also possess introductory knowledge and competencies for nursing leadership, education and research. BScN graduates are eligible to write the NCLEX-RN Canadian Registered Nurse Examination and apply to become a Registered Nurse (RN). 

Learn the Skills You Need

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 relational and ethical practice, critical thinking and clinical judgement, risk assessment, health promotion and injury prevention, writing, and health assessment. 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)

Competitive Admission

Admission to the BScN program is competitive, and the minimum admission standard (65% average) is NOT sufficient for a successful application. As the BScN program is a competitive program, academic performance is the primary criterion for admission.

The current competitive admissions chart provides some general guidelines for competitive admission requirements for programs where higher-than-minimum grades are required. However, the competitive admission requirements cannot be determined in advance, as they depend on the grades achieved by your peers who are applying to start the BScN in the same term.
