Upgrade your current Registered Practical Nursing Diploma to earn a BScN Degree!

Students receive 30 units of advanced credit and enter at Level II. The two Level II core nursing courses are designed to assist students in transitioning to the baccalaureate program. This is a collaborative program of McMaster University, Mohawk College and Conestoga College. Students choose to attend one of the three sites and graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) degree from McMaster University. Curriculum is designed so that the study of nursing, the humanities, and the physiological, psychological and social sciences are interrelated and threaded throughout the program.
