Admission to the TWU Nursing program is limited to 50 students and is granted beginning in the fall semester only. Students applying to Nursing must complete both an application to the University and one to the Nursing program (a separate application and reference).
Admission into the Nursing program is competitive and based upon academic admission requirements, the Nursing application, references, and relevant work and volunteer experience. Applications are reviewed for Nursing admission after the February 28 deadline for the following fall semester. Applications will not be considered until all required components are on file. Late applications will be considered on a space availability basis.
In addition to meeting TWU entrance requirements, admission to the Nursing program requires completion of Grade 12 or GED with a minimum cumulative GPA of B- in courses required for Nursing admission, and completion of Biology 12, Chemistry 12, English 12, and Math 11 with a minimum standing of C+ in each course.
Transfer students from colleges and universities, including TWU, must meet the entrance requirements outlined above. University credits must meet the stipulated minimum requirements within the Nursing program: C in science courses, C average in all other courses, and C+ in any prior nursing credits. Please note the transferability of nursing credits into the TWU Nursing program should not be assumed. Courses will be considered on an individual basis. However, transfer credits will not usually shorten the four years required to complete the TWU Nursing degree.
Admitted students will receive notification by letter and/or a telephone call from their admissions counsellor. All students admitted to the program must forward a $500 enrolment deposit by May 1 to confirm their admission into Nursing. Those who do not make this payment by May 1 will lose their place in the program. This deposit is non-refundable after May 1. Students who meet the entrance criteria but who are not admitted will be placed on a waitlist. Students from this list may be admitted after May 1 providing there is a place in the program. Applications received after March 15 will be reviewed on a space availability basis.
Personal interviews with Nursing faculty may be required prior to admission to the Nursing program.
Current TWU students who wish to transfer into the Nursing program must pick up an application package from the faculty assistant (Mrs. Jan Farquhar). Completed application forms and supporting documentation must be submitted by February 28.
Students with English as a second language will be required to meet the English Proficiency Requirement as per the TWU Academic Calendar.
