See Western-Fanshawe Collaborative Nursing Program in Nursing – Admission policy
The Western-Fanshawe Collaborative Program offers a 4 year BScN program that qualifies graduates to apply to write the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) and subsequently register as a professional nurse with the College of Nurses of Ontario. The program is offered collaboratively by Western and Fanshawe College of Applied Arts and Technology. The first two years of the program are offered at both institutions. All students complete years 3 and 4 at the Western site. Program requirements are the same at both sites.
Accelerated Year 4
Students entering Year 4 can select to commence their studies earlier through the Accelerated Year 4 (AY4). Instead of beginning Year 4 classes in the Fall term and completing the Integrative Practicum in the Winter term (with graduation at the Spring convocation), AY4 students commence their fourth year in May and complete their Integrative Practicum in the Fall term.
Degrees are conferred at the February In Absentia Convocation ceremony.
Selection for the Accelerated Year 4 is limited by the number and type of available placement locations.
