Prerequisites Needed to Study Nursing in Canada
Nursing is available both as a diploma or an undergraduate degree program in Canada. The national licensing body, the Canadian Nurses Association, recommends all nurses obtain their undergraduate Baccalaureate degree as it is required in all provinces except Quebec and Yukon Territory.
To be admitted to either a diploma or undergraduate degree program (BN or BSc) in nursing, students must have completed high school with English, mathematics, biology, and chemistry, with at least a C average. Physics is recommended. For those without the necessary prerequisites, many schools offer a pre-nursing year.
Many nursing schools offer specialized advanced programs; some examples are emergency nursing, cardiac nursing, oncology nursing, school nursing, pediatric nursing, and geriatric nursing.
