Online Nursing application: The 2017 online Nursing application is now available. Applicants currently attending high school must fill out two applications: one to Memorial University and one to Nursing. The Nursing application is embedded within the Memorial application, therefore as soon as students select Nursing as their program of study, it will automatically bring them into the Nursing application. There is only one application fee, $60, which is for the Memorial admission application. Applicants can find the link to apply here: http://www.mun.ca/nursingadmissions/Admission/HowtoApply/

Required High School Average for Nursing: To be competitive for admission into the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program, high school applicants should have an 80% average or higher on the required courses for admission.

Midterm Grades: Students or school representatives MUST email us a copy of the student’s February report cards/midterm grades. These grades are required for admission into the Bachelor of Nursing (Collaborative) Program. If we do not receive these grades by the March 1st deadline, we cannot proceed with the application.

Set-Up MUN Email Account: Nursing admission decisions will be emailed to the student’s @mun account and to their personal email account. Therefore, please encourage your students to set-up their @mun account and to check it regularly. Here is a link which shows how to set-up the @mun account: http://www.mun.ca/cc/munmail/makethechoice.php
