How to apply to the Bachelor of Nursing program

Step 1: Admission requirements

Review the Bachelor of Nursing admissions requirements before getting started.

Step 2: Additional documents

You’ll need the following documents to complete your application:

  • Official transcript of marks from high school and/or any community college or university courses
  • Admission decisions are based on the applicant’s admission average or Grade Point Average (GPA) (60% weight) and the CASPer score (40% weight). All applicants to UNB’s Nursing programs are required to complete the CASPer test, an online Situational Judgement Assessment, as part of the application process. This includes applicants to the four-year Bachelor of Nursing on both campuses; the LPN to BN Pathway, and the Bachelor of Nursing Accelerated Program through UNB Fredericton, and the LPN to BN Bridge program through UNB Saint John. An applicant may write the CASPer test once per year. Applicants who have taken the test in previous years will be required to re-take it if reapplying for admission.

Step 3: Don’t miss the deadline

We recommend that you submit your application before the end of January, but completed applications and fees are accepted until Feb. 15.

Step 4: Apply

After submitting your application, you will receive an automatic confirmation email including your UNB application number. Save that email for future reference.

Upon acceptance to the Bachelor of Nursing program, the following additional documentation will be requested:

  • Current immunization record
  • Current CPR at the healthcare provider level (CPR-HCP or Level C with AED)
  • Criminal Record with vulnerable sector check
  • Suicide Intervention Certification (before or during first year). Not required by the Moncton Accelerated Program.
