Bachelor of Nursing - Second Entry Preparation

Humber is proud of its collaboration with the University of New Brunswick (UNB) – both institutions have long-standing traditions of excellence in nursing education in Canada.

The Bachelor of Nursing – Second Entry Preparation program offers students with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 in a minimum of 60 credit hours of university courses a pathway into the nursing profession. Taking into account an individual’s prior learning and following the completion of a preparation semester, the Bachelor of Nursing – Second Entry Preparation program allows students to complete the curriculum in two years.

Admission to the Bachelor of Nursing – Second Entry Preparation program is a two-step process. First students are admitted to a preparatory semester, offered from September to December, consisting of five courses – Psychology – An Introduction, Statistics: Biological Science, Human Anatomy, Pathophysiology and Microbiology.

Secondly, students must maintain a grade of at least 74 per cent in each preparatory course in order to be admitted into the Bachelor of Nursing – Second Entry Preparation program. Students, who possess all of the preparatory courses at the university level and a minimum of 74 per cent in each, may be admitted directly into the Bachelor of Nursing – Second Entry Preparation program. A relevant, well-rounded curriculum focuses on the nurse’s role in community/public health, primary health-care and acute-care settings. All full-time faculty hold a master’s degree or higher.

Your Career

According to Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, nursing is seen as a high-growth career option, with more than 14,000 openings annually until at least 2020.

Upon graduating from this program, eligible students may choose from provincial, national and international placements in community/public health, primary health-care or acute-care settings. Eligible students may also seek graduate education.

Admission Requirements

  • A completed three- or four-year university degree with a 3.0 or 74 per cent grade point average (GPA) or higher. For applicants who have completed more than 60 credit hours, the admission average will be calculated on the most recent 60 credit hours of course work. The grades for all courses taken within an academic term will be included in this calculation, even if this results in exceeding the 60 credit hours requirement. Applicants who have not completed a three- or four-year university degree, but who possess 60 university credit hours with a 3.0 or 74 per cent GPA or higher, may also be considered for admission. International credentials must be accompanied by a World Education Services Comprehensive course-by-course report.
  • A minimum mark of 70 per cent in Grade 12 English (ENG4U), Grade 12 Chemistry (SCH4U), Biology (SBI4U) and any Grade 12 U-level Mathematics or equivalent.

All applicants whose first language is not English must meet Humber’s English Language Proficiency Policy.

The Bachelor of Nursing program is a full disclosure program. Applicants must disclose and provide academic transcripts for all course work completed at the postsecondary (college or university) level. Disclosure and documentation is required for all courses, including those not leading to a completed credential; where credit was not granted; and where academic work was not related to the field of nursing. Failure to disclose previous postsecondary course work is considered an academic offence and can result in withdrawal from the program.
