Bridging to University Nursing – Flexible is a three-semester graduate certificate program that will give registered practical nurses (RPNs) the opportunity to bridge to a degree in nursing.
While this health program will feature the same curriculum as the full-time Bridging to University Nursing program, it will also offer fall and winter intakes. The fall intake doesn't run during the summer, while the winter intake runs three consecutive semesters.
This nursing program's curriculum is based on the College of Nurses' of Ontario (CNO) Standards of Practice for Nursing and Entry to Practice Competencies for Ontario Registered Nurses. Its aim — by emphasizing ethics and professional practice, health assessment, skill mastery and caring for clients with acute and chronic illness — will be to provide a solid foundation for nursing practice. An exciting and unique aspect will be the program's focus on caring for individuals, groups and communities in acute care, mental health and community settings.
To ensure you're prepared for the field, this School of Community and Health Studies program will provide you with opportunities to apply theoretical knowledge in clinical settings under the direction, facilitation and guidance of faculty.
