The General Arts and Science Pre-Nursing program is designed for students who are interested in applying to the collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN), four-year degree program. Students develop time management and study skills and determine if they have the interest, aptitudes and skills required to pursue a career in nursing. Graduates of the one-year Pre-Nursing certificate program are eligible for admission to the BScN program offered by the University of Ottawa provided they have achieved at least a C+ in one biology and one chemistry course in the program and have an overall cumulative grade point average of 3.0 for the program.
On successful completion of two semesters (September-April), students will be eligible to graduate and receive a college certificate. Graduates may apply to the BScN at the University of Ottawa, to another program at the College or may continue their studies in the second year of the General Arts and Science program. Some credits acquired during the one year certificate program may be considered as transfer credits towards other college programs.
These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
