Honors Admission Requirements

Smiling student TEXT: Honors Admission Requirements

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) Honors Program is for a select group of high achieving students who are either drawn from our BScN Collaborative Program or apply directly to the After Degree Honors Program. The BScN-Honors Program provides the same clinical preparation as the Collaborative and After Degree Programs. In addition, Honors students will gain more in-depth knowledge in the area of research and — mentored and supported by a Faculty of Nursing Researcher — carry out an Honors research project.
