Nursing Information Sessions


Students must attend a Nursing Information Session to be eligible to apply to the clinical Nursing program. These sessions are offered in the fall and spring semesters. Students can attend a Nursing Information Session at any time. Attendance is recommended during the semester before finishing prerequisites to ensure enough time to complete any outstanding requirements. A Nursing Information Session is the only place a student may obtain a clinical application. Clinical applications will only be made available to qualified students who attend the ENTIRE information session - late entry to the information session will not be permitted. Clinical applications can be turned into Coordinator of Health Science Education once all prerequisites have been met. A student is not eligible to apply to the clinical nursing program until they have completed ALL prerequisites.

The nursing information session is approximately 90 minutes. Students must attend the entire session in order to receive a clinical application - no one will be allowed to enter once the information session has started. No confirmations will be sent for RSVP'S to these sessions, consider yourself registered upon sending your RSVP email.
