Admission Requirements
English-language proficiency. Within the program and prior to taking clinical courses, you must be eligible for registration with the CRNBC. If you near completion of your undergraduate nursing education and are not yet registered as a nurse, you may take the first two theory courses prior to becoming registered. Prior experience with children and families is an asset. This experience takes a variety of forms, including: a senior preceptorship in nursing school in a pediatric, perinatal or neonatal area; volunteer work with childbearing families; and employment in a Pediatric, Perinatal or Neonatal area. If you are considering Pediatric nursing and have not had previous exposure to the profession, you can benefit from a day spent in a hospital Pediatric unit, and from talking to Pediatric nurses about the specialty and their practice.

Distance Delivery Options

Theory courses over a 12-week term using guided-learning modules and telephone tutor support. They often include teleconferences, which provide opportunities for students and tutors to discuss issues relevant to the course.
