McMaster’s Basic (A) Stream program is unique in that it emphasizes person-centered learning within a problem-based approach, uses tutorial classes, and facilitates self-directed learning. The curriculum is designed so that the study of nursing; the humanities; and the physiological, psychological and social sciences are interrelated and threaded throughout the program.
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).
All students must review the CNO's Requisite Skills and Abilities
and assess their ability to meet the criteria set forth in this document.
