Hello everyone, I have a question.. when attending a school's open house I was told that I should look into the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSCN) Collaborative Program this school offers because my pre-health marks meet the requirement for acceptance. However, my question which I didn't think to ask then, but should have is this:

Can I still get accepted if I am a mature student who took the normal pre-health and not the advanced still get into a collaborative program? I don't want to get my hopes up for nothing. Is it possible that I could get into a collaborative program or should I just continue as I am doing and go the RPN then bridge to BSCN route? 

I understand these collaborative programs are different from the normal BSCN programs at say Conestoga, Humber or Mohawk..Advise please.. 

I emailed admissions at the school I went to see and am waiting to hear back. If anyone can answer this for me that would be great and anyone that has done a collaborative program that can give me details on their experience on the course and any insight would be amazing. 

Thanks

Hello. Collaborative program is between a college and university. For instance, you do 1st & 2nd year in college then continue to university for 3rd & 4th year. BScN in Humber is with University of New Brunswick. I believe the campus is still in Humber. Mohawk/Conestoga is with McMaster University. Centennial/George Brown is with Ryerson University. 

Each school has their screening before getting into the program; therefore, each school will make sure you completed high school math, biology/chemistry, English or GED equivalents. Click the highlighted portion to check on each school's requirement for mature students. Admission is also case-to-case basis. 

I would suggest for you to get the BScN now rather than do RPN then bridging. However, it is still your decision based on your life situation. 

Cheers.

Thanks< I agree. I spoke with them today and I do not meet the requirements for BScN because I didn't take the sciences in high school and pre-health is not the advanced one..bridging it is then.. 🙂

I completed the PN program and then bridged, it was my intent all along and looking back I still wouldn’t change it. It’s a great route and your experience as an RPN will be invaluable during the BScN program.

does anyone know when Ryerson should be releasing acceptances for their BScN program for fall 2019 intake? I am currently finishing another degree in University if that makes any difference.

You can email one of these Ryerson BScN Student Affairs Coordinators for undergraduate academic advising. Cheers.
