NOTE: * An elective in the final year could be completed in the Spring or Fall – timing would allow for funding with at least 9 credit hours in that semester.

These courses will be offered during the same year at all sites, but the semester of course offering may vary with each site.

Students in the BN (Collaborative) Program will do all nursing courses at the Centre’s Forest Road Campus. Non-nursing courses are completed at the St. John’s Campus of Memorial University. Schedules are planned to keep commuting time between the two campuses to a minimum.

Full course descriptions are located on Memorial University’s Calendar.
