BSN Graduation Requirements
A minimum of 21 units of course work must be done through the University of Victoria by all students, although students are encouraged to complete as much of their course work as possible from the University of Victoria.
To meet University of Victoria graduation requirements, at least 21 units must be numbered at the 300 or 400 level (see Minimum Degree Requirements for Graduation).
Continuing students must complete 31.5 units of course work of which no more than 3.0 units may be transfer credit.
Post-diploma students must complete 24 units of course work of which no more than 3.0 units may be transfer credit.
Students may be permitted, with the approval of the Director or designate, to present up to 3 units of transfer credit from institutions other than the University of Victoria. Course work can be completed college or university level post-basic certificate/diploma programs and/or approved university-level nursing and/or non-nursing courses. Students are advised to ensure the acceptability of such courses by the School of Nursing before enrolling in them.
All students must meet the Undergraduate English requirement.
Post-diploma students who do not meet the University of Victoria’s English requirement upon admission to the program are advised to register in ENGL 115* online (by distance education) during their first or second term of study in the program. Please consult the appropriate WebReg guide for registration information, or contact the School of Nursing Adviser. Nursing students registering in the online ENGL 115 course are NOT required to write the LPI examination, but may register directly in the course.
Early completion of the English requirement will facilitate writing academic papers. Students who have not satisfied the English requirement by the time they have completed 12 units of course work after admission to the BSN program (including courses completed elsewhere) will be ineligible for reauthorization and registration in future sessions until the requirement is satisfied.
Completion of ENGL 115* will satisfy the non-nursing elective requirement in the program, if needed.
* or transferable equivalent course
Note: Practice Course and Co-requisite Theory Course Section ChangesContinuing students only. For all required practice courses and corequisite theory courses (NURS 350, 351, 430, 431, 370, 470, 475 and 491) all continuing on campus students will register in a single section for each course. The School of Nursing will then register students into multiple sections of the course at a later date, prior to the beginning of the term. The following factors are taken into consideration when students are placed in their section of the course:
1. The intent is for students to select an elective that enhances their BSN course work. The elective can be a course at UVic or transferable to UVic, at the 100 level or above, outside the School.
2. May be taken more than once for credit to a maximum of 4.5 units.
3. May be used to satisfy either a nursing or non-nursing elective requirement and is a required prerequisite for admission to all School of Nursing graduate program options.
4. May be used to satisfy either a nursing or non-nursing elective.
