Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN)

Could you see yourself in an intensive clinical practice course at the end of your third year of study?

Do you want to learn using patient simulators that are programmed to mimic the same physical responses as patients?

Would you like to begin clinical practice courses in your first year of study?

There are two ways to obtain a four-year BScN degree

1) Complete all four years of the BScN degree program at Brock University.
2) Successfully complete your first two years at Loyalist College in Belleville, ON, and then transfer to Brock to complete Years 3 and 4.
