To qualify for the B.S.N., all students must have a minimum of 3 credits in English. Exceptionally, this English prerequisite may be waived for students who have completed a bachelor's degree from an accredited university (where English was the main language of instruction during that degree).

Third & Fourth Year Courses

|Total Credits (Years 3 & 4)||81|
|Total Program Credits||129|
The minimum passing grade for nursing theory courses is 60%. The minimum cumulative grade average to continue in the program is 65%.
Clinical nursing and laboratory courses are marked on a Pass/Fail basis. A clinical course must be passed in order to progress to a subsequent clinical course. A failure in a laboratory course may require withdrawal from a clinical course.
Supplemental examinations are not offered.
Students who do not achieve the minimum grade average for promotion or who fail a clinical course will normally be required to discontinue study in the School for at least one year.
Although satisfactory academic performance is a prerequisite to advancement, it is not the sole criterion in the consideration of the suitability of a student for promotion or graduation. The School reserves the right to require a student to withdraw from the School if considered to be unsuited to proceed with the study or practice of nursing.
In order to graduate and to meet the British Columbia College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM) requirements for Interprofessional Practice competencies, and as required by B.S.N. program approval from the regulatory body, students must complete the interprofessional education requirements of the program: students are required to participate in a minimum series of learning activities determined by the School of Nursing and tracked through the UBC Interprofessional (IPE) Passport system.
