The School of Nursing provides high-quality, innovative nursing education in a unique educational setting. The programs promote nursing as a caring, client-centred, scientifically-based profession. The goal is to prepare students for practice in a wide variety of health care settings through curricula that are responsive to real world needs. Our Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program is delivered in partnership with Mohawk College and Conestoga College.
The School of Nursing pioneered problem-based learning (PBL) in nursing education and we continue to believe that this approach best prepares students for the roles that they will hold after graduation. PBL involves small and large group, self-directed learning that emphasizes interpersonal skills, independent learning, and leadership qualities. Learning is a process of inquiry, a skill to develop as a life-long activity in an environment conducive to openness and sharing between faculty and students. Self-directed learning promotes the development of critical thinking abilities and self-evaluation skills. Students apply concepts from nursing and related disciplines to their experiences in classroom, simulation, and clinical settings.
You will have many opportunities throughout your program to put theory into practice in clinical settings. Through our partnerships with a wide variety of hospitals, agencies, and community settings, you will experience multiple locations and specialties that will help you to decide what specialty is right for you. There are also exciting opportunities for nursing placements in outpost and international settings. In the Clinical Learning Centre, you will have the opportunity to practice skills learned on simulation equipment and work with interprofessional student teams to solve healthcare scenarios.

With my previous undergraduate degree being Exercise Science, I've always been passionate about health and the human body, and wanted to further my career in a path that would allow me to be of service to optimize the health of people around me. I chose nursing because the profession in itself would allow me to be of favour to a variety of different people, such as those that are fighting disease or illness as well as those in which I could help prevent disease. Choosing McMaster Nursing has been the best decision I could make to enhance my nursing career and has helped shape me as a future nurse. I came to choose this program through my understanding of the prestige and extensive resources of McMaster nursing and by speaking to peers, who have graduated from the program with success and are now exceptional nurses. The program is filled with incredibly knowledgeable professors, clinical instructors, and resources that have helped me succeed in my becoming of a nurse. Those who choose McMaster nursing will benefit from this program in the same way that it has helped me – which was to create, shape, and mold a nurse to make a difference in the field as a skilled and compassionate professional in my nursing practice.

I recently graduated with my BScN nursing degree from McMaster. This incredible program did not only prepare me to be a RN, but it also taught me how to treat every individual with respect, dignity and worth both in and out of the profession. Before starting my nursing journey I shamelessly made judgments and assumptions of others. The wonderful professors and person-based style of learning at McMaster allowed me view every patient equally and learn their unique stories. I have learnt that behind every individual is a story, hardships and success along with the importance to listen to the client without judgement. This nursing program will allow each and every one of you to learn how to view the patient as a human being despite their diagnosis, appearance and background which allows you to provide the best care possible. Your McMaster nursing future awaits you!
