ASN/RN to BSN in Canada?

Nursing Students School Programs


Specializes in ICU/Critical Care.

I ask mostly to satiate my curiosity, since I've never had much luck getting straight answers about Nursing Programs through Google.

I'm about to start my nursing classes at a local college here in the state of Georgia, and it's to earn my Associate's degree. I plan on pursuing my BSN immediately after I've finished(sometime during mid to late 2020). However, I've also planned on moving to British Columbia, as I've got a close friend there and for the past decade we've spoken about how it would be a good fit for me.

I know that most nursing programs in Canada are 4 year BSN courses and 2 year LPN/RPN courses. Are there any that cater to RNs that have their associate's degree? If those programs exist, do they even consider international students?

One way or another, I'll be pursuing my BSN and settling in the Vancouver area eventually; I just figured having some kind of schooling in the area would help my chances of staying permanently.

Hi! Did you manage to move to BC ?

lots of bridge and access programs here...I don't know what will count, I found UBC is the fairest for applicants while other schools want to take only their courses.. check out the bc transfer guide/decide on a couple of schools, and do your of luck
