BNI

The Bachelor of Nursing (Integrated) Program is open to students who have completed the 180.A0 DEC, i.e. nursing at the CEGEP level.

This program is, in reality, the next step in a five-year program that follows from the three-year DEC program given by Dawson College, Vanier College, John Abbott College and Heritage College. Upon completion of the subsequent two years in McGill, BNI students will earn their Bachelor of Nursing degree. The two years consist of three semesters in the first year, and two semester in the last year.

Below is the list of courses you are required to take each term, if you are a full-time, full-course load student. In between the parentheses are the number of credits the class is worth.

BNI: Course of study

The BNI program consists of 93 credits. Students receive 27 credits of advanced standing from their 180.A0 DEC in Nursing and are admitted to McGill at the U2 level.

Part-time studies in the Bachelor of Nursing Integrated Program

Part-time students may take each of the U2 and U3 years over two years, for a total of four years. Two principles guide the division of the years: first, theoretical foundations precede clinical courses; and second, companion theory and clinical courses are kept in the same year.
