Nursing 180.A0 and 180.A1

 

3-year Program 180.A0

The Nursing Program is based on a conceptual framework of nursing adopted by the John Abbott Nursing Department, which is designed to meet the Nursing competencies provided by the MESRS (Ministère de l’Enseignement Supérieur et de la Recherche Scientifique).

Graduates of this program receive a CEGEP diploma and are eligible to write the Québec licensing examinations administered by the Ordre des infirmières du Québec (OIIQ). Some students must also demonstrate appropriate knowledge of oral and written French with the Office de la langue française before a license to practice will be granted.
John Abbott College is also part of the McGill Consortium which includes three other Anglophone CEGEPs that offer Nursing. The consortium and John Abbott have adapted concepts and content with the McGill program to prepare students to continue with university studies. After completion of the 3-year CEGEP diploma in Nursing at John Abbott College, eligible students may apply to McGill University and pursue their studies for two years full-time or three to four years part-time toward a Baccalaureate degree in Nursing (BN).
