Nursing Certificates as an option to undergraduate students in the BScN program are as followed:

• Acute/Critical Care Nursing
• Mental Health Nursing
• Oncology Nursing
• Perinatal and Pediatric Nursing

The certificate will enable students to explore an area of nursing more in-depth than the generalist level and is responsive to service sector demands in various targeted areas of nursing practice. The certificates are an option for undergraduate students once they complete Semester 5 of the BScN program.
