UVic BSN in Partnership with Camosun College - determined annually and posted on the School of Nursing website
Please note that acceptance to and completion of the college portion of the program does not ensure a place in the University of Victoria School of Nursing; students are admitted to the program as resources permit in accordance with a selection process developed by the School of Nursing.
* Students at the Yellowknife, Cranbrook and Castlegar campuses should contact the faculty member responsible for practice placements regarding local practice and health authority regulations and requirements at their respective site.
Course enrolment is guaranteed for students who follow the program course sequence at their designated partner institution as identified online at <www.uvic.ca/hsd/nursing>. Students who fall out of sequence for any reason should contact the academic advisor to discuss course planning in further detail. Please be advised that BSN core and option-specific courses are offered once a year. Enrolment for out of sequence students is based upon course space, instructor, and practice placement availability.
All students in the School of Nursing must follow the faculty’s Guidelines for Professional Conduct, and Regulations Concerning Practicaand be aware of the consequences of unprofessional conduct, and are subject to the provisions of the Canadian Nurses’ Association (CNA) Code of Ethics for Registered Nurses and the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia (CRNBC) professional and/or practice standards (or the equivalent in the province/territory/state in which the student practises). In addition to the above, the following School of Nursing practice regulations apply:
1.
Where a student is enrolled in a Nursing Practice course (including NURS 345, 351, 370, 431, 456, 470, 475, 491, 495) and there are reasonable grounds to believe that the conduct or lack of competence of a student enrolled in a nursing practice course has adversely affected or may adversely affect, those associated with the practice placement including:
The normal avenues of final appeal, (see Appeals) are available to students who have been required to withdraw from a practicum. Students in the Faculty of Human and Social Development may follow regular appeal procedures within the faculty.
The BC Criminal Record Review Act (the "CRRA") requires that every registered student who will work with children and/or vulnerable adults undergo a criminal record check completed through the B.C. Ministry of Justice. This is a very specific type of criminal record check, and an RCMP or local police detachment check is not sufficient.
Any student found to be at risk by the Ministry will not be able to participate in a work integrated learning experience (e.g. clinical placement, practicum, internship, work experience, co-op, job shadow observational, some in-class practice exercises, etc.) and other aspects of a program, and may therefore be unable to participate in or complete the work integrated learning experience. If the work integrated learning experience is required for the student's program, this means that the student may not be able to complete the program and may not graduate. Therefore, students should carefully consider this requirement before applying to, or continuing in, this program.
The check must be newly authorized every 5 years. Under the CRRA, registrants must provide to the UVic School of Nursing a new CRRA check every five years. The UVic School of Nursing is under a legislated duty to obtain every student's new Criminal Records check, before the anniversary of five years from their last check. The UVic School of Nursing is legally bound to remove the student from a practicum (work integrated learning experience) if they fail to provide a required CRRA check
Please see the UVic School of Nursing website <uvic.nursing.ca> for further information regarding the criminal records check.
All students must provide evidence of successful completion of a basic life support level-C course or higher. Current CPR level-C certification or higher must be on file in the School of Nursing for students to remain registered in the program. CPR certification is valid for two years beginning from the date of issue. All costs and responsibilities associated with this are the responsibility of the individual student. All BSN Partnership unlicensed students must ensure that the CPR certificate is valid through completion of a BSN program at the University of Victoria.
Note: the course credit time limit does not apply to English (or courses designated as fulfilling the Academic Writing Requirement (AWR) or courses used toward fulfilling the non-Nursing elective requirements.
All students must meet the Academic Writing Requirement. Completion of an AWR-designated course may satisfy the non-nursing elective requirement in the program, if needed. Early completion of the Academic Writing Requirement will facilitate writing academic papers.
Post-diploma students who do not meet the University of Victoria’s Academic Writing Requirement upon admission to the program are advised to register in 1.5 units of an AWR-designated course (ENGL 135, 146, 147, ENGR 110) during their first or second term of study in the program. Please consult the appropriate online timetable for registration information, or contact the School of Nursing Adviser.
