In order to practice in Ontario as a Registered Nurse, Nursing program graduates must be successful in the Registration Examination administered by the College of Nurses of Ontario and must maintain their certificate of competence thereafter. As a result of regulations arising out of the Nursing Act 1991, applicants for registration in Ontario must not have been convicted of:

  • A criminal offence

    OR

  • An offence under the Narcotic Control Act (Canada) or the Food and Drugs Act (Canada)

Applicants who do not meet this requirement will be reviewed by the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) to determine if registration will be granted.

Successful Ontario registrants are eligible for registration throughout Canada (French required in Quebec).

Important Information 

Seneca College offers the Nursing program in collaboration with York University. Successfully complete the first two years (four semesters) of this program and you will be eligible to continue on to York University to complete two additional years leading to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (Honours) Degree. You’ll be required to meet York University admission requirements. The Collaborative BScN program is a four-year full-time program. Students normally must complete this program within six (6) calendar years (18 semesters) from the time of admission.

Important Notice

As of January 1, 2005, all new applicants for professional registration with the College of Nurses of Ontario must complete a bachelor’s degree in Nursing.

Program Requirements 

All students in a York University Honours program must maintain an overall (all courses) grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 (C+ or 65%). For students in the Honours BScN program there are three additional requirements for courses:

  • A minimum grade of C+ (65%) for all professional (NUR/HAP/HDP) courses.

  • A “SATISFACTORY” grade in the clinical component of all practicum courses.

  • A minimum grade of C (60%) for all other courses (PSY/LSO).

In Years 1 and 2, your academic standing is evaluated at the end of each term. You will receive a transcript on Student Centre. It will contain a statement about whether or not you are eligible to continue in the BScN program.

Academic Standing definitions for the BScN program are:

  • Good – Successfully completed all professional courses with a term GPA* of 2.5 or greater.

  • Probation- Failed one professional course or term GPA* is below 2.5. Must successfully complete all future professional subjects to remain in the program. No option to drop any professional courses.

  • Withdrawn- Does not meet program progression requirements. Failed two or more professional courses.

Additional Information: 

  • Students who have been out of the program for longer than one year may be required to repeat credits previously attained. There are no partial credits.

  • Students are allowed to retake a professional course once, provided they meet the requirements to remain in the program. Students should note that course availability and space considerations may preclude the possibility of repeating a course in the term they choose.

  • When a student is allowed to repeat a course, the second grade will be the grade of record, and the only grade calculated in the student’s Program GPA. Both grades will be calculated in the Cumulative GPA. A course can be credited only once towards satisfaction of degree academic credit requirements.

  • In order to transfer to York University, students must have successfully completed all required courses in Years 1 and 2 with a minimum program GPA of 2.5.
