The Department of Nursing offers an Honours Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. Students may study at Brock University, or collaboratively with Loyalist College.

Students at the Brock site will complete the four-year program at Brock’s campus in St. Catharines, Ont. Students at the Loyalist site will complete the first two years of the four-year program at the Loyalist College campus in Belleville, Ont. After successful completion of the first two years at Loyalist College, you’ll be admitted to the final two years of the program at Brock.

Our program is founded on clinical practice, with these courses beginning in your first year. Students also gain experience in our state-of-the-art Nursing Learning Resource Centre, where patient simulators are programmed to exhibit the physical responses of patients in various situations, mimicking real clinical and emergency situations in a safe learning environment. You’ll acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes to prepare you for professional nursing practice within the context of a changing health-care system.

As a Brock graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, you’ll be eligible to write the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN exam).
