BSc(N): Revised course of study

Important Note: This course of study applies to all new B.Sc.N. admits effective Fall 2017 and to U0 admits Fall 2016. See “Course of Study” otherwise.

The courses are outlined in the order that a full-time student would usually take them. (Note that students entering directly from high school must complete a U0 year of study - see below; mature and transfer students missing the U0 equivalencies at admission will generally need to complete these in a U0 year unless they have been granted exemptions based on higher levels of study.) The Nursing Student Affairs Office can help you make decisions if you have questions. Please check the Health Sciences Calendar or Minerva for details about course prerequisites.

French Language Courses
Effective the U1 year in the BScN program, students are eligible to sit the French language proficiency exam. This exam is a requirement for full licensure in Quebec. French is also the major spoken language in Quebec and your working knowledge of this language affects clinical placements.  If French is not your mother tongue, then we encourage you to enroll in French language courses. McGill offers a tailored course for professionals. 


U0 Required courses (33 or 34 credits)
For the mature, Canadian out-of-province and non-Canadian students, a U0 year of study is required. The first year (UO) of the 136- or 137-credit program consists of the following courses:
