Admission Requirements

This program is in high demand and the number of qualified applicants greatly exceeds the number of seats available, and, as such, not all of those meeting minimum requirements can be admitted.

The Nursing program is a competitive entry program. The application window opens each fall semester for the following academic year. Please check back in August for more details on specific application deadlines for the 2016-2017 program intake.

Have you been out of school for a few years?

It is recommended that the high school sciences and math be completed within the last 5 years.

If you have not completed these within the last 5 years, it does not mean that you will not be considered; however, we do recommend that you upgrade and/or retake these high school courses or an alternate course at Camosun.
