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.
