Canadian residents will be given preference in the selection process. The School of Nursing will select for admission those applicants who not only demonstrate academic potential, but who also most aptly display a motivation to study nursing and who demonstrate the qualities and skills most necessary to be a caring and competent professional nurse. In addition, the School will select those applicants who demonstrate the best potential for academic success, leadership, and ability to advance the nursing profession.

    * The entrance grade may change from year to year. Please contact the school for further information.
