I appreciate your replies.
Unfortunately, I have tried to contact the CNO about this matter, but my email was never answered. Also, I'm looking for personal experiences with this, if possible.
Sorry! Not to beat a dead horse, but several matters really make this issue particularly confusing. For example, McGill University has a direct-entry master's program
. So, is it true that even graduates of that
program, based in Montreal, would still be ineligible to practice nursing in Ontario? Furthermore, ADN grads with bachelor's degrees in non-nursing fields are required to take a few extra courses, to round out the ADN, before being eligible for the various MSN programs in the US that allow entry into their programs without a BSN; still, all applicants
must have a bachelor's degree in something.
Furthermore, some of the most prestigious institutions in the world offer direct-entry master's programs for people who already a bachelor's degree in another field, who decide later they wish to become nurses. These students do NOT obtain a BSN (in most cases)--just an MSN.
So, please, any additional clarification would be greatly appreciated. I am hoping someone who either has a direct-entry master's or went the ADN-MSN route, with a bachelor's in another field can chime in as to his/her experience with Ontario licensure acceptance or rejection!
