Please note that the Post-Diploma Practical Nurse (E) Stream is only offered by our collaborative partners, Mohawk College or Conestoga College.
The Post-Diploma RPN to BScN (E) Stream is designed for college-trained Registered Practical Nurses (RPNs) who wish to obtain their baccalaureate nursing degree (Bachelor of Science in Nursing, or BScN). The (E) Stream builds on the knowledge and skills acquired in the practical nurse diploma program. The curriculum is planned for three academic years of full-time study at either Mohawk College or Conestoga College.
Upon graduation, students wishing to engage in the professional practice of nursing and use the title Registered Nurse are subject to qualifying examinations and other requirements by the licensing body, the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO).
*Note: All students must review the CNO's Requisite Skills and Abilities and assess their ability to meet the criteria set forth in this document.
