Admission to the MN Course Stream

To be considered for admission to the Master of Nursing course stream, you must meet the minimum program requirements:

  • A Bachelor’s degree in nursing, or its equivalent
  • A minimum CGPA or equivalent of 3.00 (B) overall with 3.00 (B) average in the last two years or 20 graded courses of study.
Admission to Ryerson’s graduate nursing course stream is highly competitive.  We look for applicants who have good academic standing in nursing  and non-nursing subjects. Strong preference is given to students with a 3.33 (B+) average or above in the final half of their undergraduate nursing program or last 20 one-term/semester courses.

The First Consideration deadline date is January 19. For those candidates wishing to have their application reviewed for the First Consideration Deadline, the Yeates School of Graduate Studies Admissions Office must have received all of the Required and Supplementary Supporting Documentation no later than January 19.
