A baccalaureate degree in nursing is the minimum requirement for nursing registration with the College of Nurses of Ontario. Conestoga College, Mohawk College and McMaster University are working together to meet this requirement. Through this consortium arrangement, Conestoga College offers nursing curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) degree.

In preparation to pursuing a nursing career, we encourage all prospective nursing students to carefully consider the requisite skills and abilities for nursing practice in Ontario outlined by the College of Nurses of Ontario, as well as the essential requirements for study in baccalaureate nursing programs in Ontario from the Council of Ontario University Programs in Nursing.
