Remarks from the Chair and Related Questions
TRIPS TO OTTAWA AND CALGARY
The President reported that a UBC delegation had recently travelled to Ottawa to attend a
meeting of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada. The group included
seven recent appointees to Canada Research Chairs. In addition to meeting with
government officials to discuss federal funding for research infrastructure, the group
hosted an alumni event that was attended by approximately 200 people.
A significant alumni event had recently taken place in Calgary, and approximately 150
alumni attended. The President estimated that 4000 UBC alumni live in the Calgary
region, and expressed the hope that the University could strengthen its relationship with
those alumni.
TRIP TO MEXICO
The President had recently travelled to Mexico as a guest of the Instituto Tecnologico y de
Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (Tec de Monterrey). Of the 30 campuses across
Mexico, the President was able to visit the Guadalajara and Monterrey sites. The
President cited a meeting with the Board of Trustees in Monterrey as the beginning of the
development of a significant and long term relationship with Tec de Monterrey.
MACLEAN'S RANKINGS
President Piper was pleased to report that Maclean's had ranked UBC second overall in
medical and doctoral programs for the third consecutive year. UBC had been in fourth
position in the

past, and later had tied with Queen's University for the second position. UBC now holds
the second position on its own. Although the President urged senators not to overestimate
the importance of such rankings, she noted that members of the public see Maclean's as
an independent voice. UBC was the only western university in the upper ranks, as well as
the only relatively young university. The President thanked students, faculty, staff and
members of Senate for their contributions to the quality of the University.
Candidates for Degrees
Dean Isaacson
Dean Blom
That the candidates for degrees and diplomas,
as approved by the Faculties and Schools, be
granted the degree or diploma for which they
were recommended, effective November 2001,
and that the Acting Registrar, in consultation
with the Deans and the Chair of Senate, be
empowered to make any necessary
adjustments.
Carried.
Admissions Committee
Please see 'Appendix A: School of Nursing Admissions Changes.'
Dr. Lyster
Dr. Berger
That Senate approve the recommendations of
the Admissions Committee with respect to the
BSN program.
In response to a query from Mr. Affleck, Dr. Lyster stated that the School of Nursing was
working to address the need for training of additional nurses in view of the worldwide
shortage. Vice President McBride added that the University had negotiated funding for
more nursing students in future.
The motion was
put and carried.

approval, and that letters of thanks be sent to
the donors.

Reports from the Vice President, Academic and Provost
LECTURE START-TIME CHANGE
The full text of this report is not included in the Minutes. Copies are available from the
Manager, Senate & Curriculum Services.
Vice President McBride recalled that the University had shifted the start times for classes
from the half-hour to the hour effective at the beginning of the 2001/02 academic year. In
accordance with the wishes of Senate, Vice President McBride was reporting back as to
the status and effectiveness of this change. He reported that more classroom time had
been made available and that there had been a decrease in peak transit ridership. Since it
would likely take six months for ridership to return to normal after the recent transit
strike, a subsequent transit ridership survey was planned for the spring of 2002.
In response to a question from Dr. Tees, Vice President McBride stated that there had
been no further progress in discussions about less expensive student bus passes as part of
the agreement to distribute transit ridership more evenly.

Report from the Acting Registrar
DONATION OF LAND
Vice President McBride gave advance notice of a forthcoming announcement about a
generous donation of land in downtown Vancouver for the joint use of UBC, Simon
Fraser University, the British Columbia Institute of Technology, and the Emily Carr
Institute of Art & Design. The land was to be used to develop an academic high-
technology park, and Dr. McBride was hopeful that the four institutions would take
advantage of collaborative opportunities.
MACLEAN'S RANKINGS
Vice President McBride took the opportunity to acknowledge the tremendous work of
faculty and staff, as well as the outstanding student body. He stated that the high ranking
of UBC by Maclean's was the result of hard work by dedicated people.

CHANGE IN ADMISSION STATEMENT AND PROCEDURES FOR APPLICANTS TO
UNDERGRADUATE BSN PROGRAM
Present Calendar Entry: (page 305-307)
Academic Advising
Advising is recommended. Returning students who are seeking advising should contact the
School in late May or early June prior to their registration access date. Students with advance
credits, and/or who are changing from outreach to on-campus study, carrying a part-time
program or who have other academic problems are expected to seek advising. The School
reserves the right to require advising prior to registration.
Admission
All inquiries relating to admission to the School of Nursing should be addressed to the
Registrar's Office. Additional information for registered nurses may be obtained from the
School of Nursing.
The last day for submission of applications for admission to the Bachelor of Science in
Nursing program for the Winter Session beginning the following September is April 30, with
necessary documents and official transcripts to be in the Registrar's Office by July 15 for the
four-year program and by June 30 for the two-year program (Upper Division Advanced
Standing). For registered nurses, application and documentation which is submitted by June 1
will be processed for September admission and by September 1 for January admission. Once
accepted, students should consult a faculty adviser in order to determine their course
sequence.
Within two weeks of notification of acceptance by the University the successful applicant is
required to submit to the School of Nursing a deposit of CAD$100 (by cheque payable to the
University of British Columbia). This deposit will be applied toward tuition fees. If the
applicant does not register the deposit will be forfeited.
The School of Nursing has a limited enrolment. Since the number of qualified applicants
usually exceeds the number of places available, fulfillment of the following requirements is
not a guarantee of admission. The faculty reserves the right of selection of all students for
admission and readmission to the School. An advising appointment is required for all
applicants with advanced standing.
Applicants whose first language is not English must demonstrate competence in both oral and
written English. Prior to being admitted to the School, applicants may be asked to enroll in a
special program to remedy problems identified with English usage.
Admission from Secondary School
Secondary school applicants must meet the general admission requirements of the University
which are British Columbia secondary school graduation or the equivalent with a 67%
average. British Columbia secondary school graduation must include the following courses:
Biology 11,
 Vancouver Senate 12818
Minutes of November 14,2001
Appendix A: School of Nursing Admissions Changes
Biology 12, Chemistry 11, English 11, English 12, French ll1, Principles of Mathematics 11,
Social Studies 11, and two additional approved examinable Grade 12 courses.
Admission with Advanced Standing2
Applicants from post-secondary institutions are required to have a minimum 67% average
(2.6 on a 4-point scale). Applicants who have completed college and/or university courses
should consult an adviser in the School of Nursing. The University will consider granting
transfer credit for all appropriate post-secondary courses completed. The following courses
are required:
English (3-6) (ENGL 112 recommended)
BIOL 153 (6) or equivalent
MICB 153 (3) or equivalent
Or other approved language
Advanced standing includes a bachelor's degree or significant progress (48 credits) toward a degree in another field of
study.
Admission for Registered Nurses
Normally, admission to the School of Nursing requires a minimum 67% average (2.6 on a 4-
point scale) based on either senior secondary school graduation or at least 12 credits of
university transfer course work, whichever is most recent. No specific courses at the
secondary school level are mandatory for registered nurse applicants.
Applicants applying as registered nurses must hold current practicing nurse registration in BC
or another province; international students must meet general eligibility criteria for nurse
registration in BC. Applicants are required to provide evidence of ability to perform to the
level of competence expected of a new graduate as congruent with RNABC guidelines.
Acceptable evidence includes one of the following:
1. Names of two referees from a current or recent (within three years) place of
employment in nursing.
2. Satisfactory completion of an RNABC-approved refresher course within three years
prior to admission. Satisfactory references are required from: a refresher course
instructor; a supervisory person in a nursing unit in which the applicant has had
clinical experience during or subsequent to the refresher course.
3. Graduation from an approved School of Nursing within the last three years; work
experience is not required.
Students presently completing a nursing diploma program can make application for a
conditional acceptance. A letter from the Director of the School of Nursing indicating the
anticipated date of completion of the program should be included with the application.
Official acceptance will only be granted upon successful completion of the RN examination
and RNABC registration or eligibility to register.
A maximum of 21 credits of course work completed at other institutions may be transferred
provided such work meets all the requirements of the University and the School of Nursing. A
max-

Minutes of November 14,2001
Appendix A: School of Nursing Admissions Changes
imum of 6 of the 21 credits may be granted for post-basic continuing education courses in
nursing completed in an educational institution. Requests for such credits are considered on
an individual basis.
Readmission
The School reserves the right to readmit students and to stipulate conditions attached to
readmission. Readmission to the School may necessitate repetition of nursing courses
previously completed if, in the judgment of faculty, curriculum changes and/or length of
interruption are sufficient to render the applicant inadequately prepared for the subsequent
year. Therefore, students are strongly advised to notify the School of Nursing by February of
their intentions to enroll in the clinical nursing course in order that suitable time is available
to complete the make-up work. Students may request the option of demonstrating
competence in the areas of change as an alternative to completing a make-up experience.
Where required preparation is unavailable due to cost or other factors, applicants may be
considered for readmission to first level nursing courses.
Post-RN Program
RN students will build a program in consultation with a faculty adviser. NURS 310, 311, 320
and 321 are for students in the generic program only.

Academic Advising
Academic advising is recommended. Advising sessions are offered to students entering first
year prior to their registration access date. Students with advanced standing, post-RN
students, and students with other academic concerns are expected to seek advising. The
School reserves the right to require advising prior to registration
Rationale: Clarification of wording and deletion of reference to returning students that is no
longer applicable.
Admission
All inquiries relating to admission to first year in the School of Nursing should be addressed
to Enrolment Services.
Inquiries related to either admission with advanced standing or admission for registered
nurses should be directed to the School of Nursing.
 Vancouver Senate 12820
Minutes of November 14,2001
Appendix A: School of Nursing Admissions Changes
Rationale: Change in wording to clarify more appropriate direction for inquiries.
The last day for submission of applications for admission from secondary school to the
Bachelor of Science in Nursing program for the Winter Session beginning the following
September is March 31, with necessary documents and official transcripts to be in Enrolment
Services by June 30 for the four-year program. For applicants with advanced standing,
applications must be submitted by February 28, with necessary documents and official
transcripts to be received in Enrolment Services by May 31. For registered nurses, application
and documentation which is submitted by June 1 will be processed for September admission
and by August 15 for January admission. Once accepted, registered nurse students should
consult a faculty adviser in order to determine their course sequence.
Rationale: Correction of application deadline for secondary school applicants and addition of
new deadlines for applicants with advanced standing to accommodate supplemental
admission requirements
Delete the following section:
[Within two weeks of notification of acceptance by the University the successful applicant is
required to submit to the School of Nursing a deposit of CAD$100 (by cheque payable to the
University of British Columbia). This deposit will be applied toward tuition fees. If the
applicant does not register the deposit will be forfeited.]
Rationale: Unnecessary due to university-wide requirement of $100 registration deposit.
The School of Nursing has a limited enrolment. Since the number of qualified applicants
usually exceeds the number of places available, fulfillment of the minimum requirements is
not a guarantee of admission. The faculty reserves the right of selection of all students for
admission and readmission to the School. [An advising appointment is required for all
applicants with advanced standing.] Delete this sentence.
Rationale: Advising information already stated above.
Applicants whose first language is not English must demonstrate competence in both oral and
written English
Please refer to the English Language Admission Standard in the Undergraduate Admissions
Section of the Calendar (web site?)
Rationale: Clarification of English language requirement
Admission from Secondary School
Procedures, policies and admission requirements to the University of British Columbia and
School of Nursing are specified in the chapter "Undergraduate Admissions" (p.25) Students
must present Biology 12 (or the equivalent). Because of enrolment limitations, the academic
standing required for admission is higher than the published minimum and not every qualified
applicant will be offered admission.
Rationale: Since the implementation of the revised BSN curriculum in 1997, the School of
Nursing has received 4-5 times as many applications as can be accepted. Applicants from
secondary
 Vancouver Senate 12821
Minutes of November 14,2001
Appendix A: School of Nursing Admissions Changes
school with an average of less than 75% and applicants with advanced standing with an
average of less than 80% have rarely been accepted. This statement provides applicants with
information about the competitive nature of the admission.
Admission with Advanced Standing
Advanced standing includes a bachelor's degree or significant progress (48 credits) toward a
degree in another field of study.
Rationale: A clear statement of the meaning of advanced standing is more appropriate here
than as a footnote.
The School will select for admission those students who not only demonstrate academic
potential but also most aptly display a motivation to study nursing and demonstrate they
possess the qualities and skills most necessary to be a caring and competent professional
nurse. Candidates may be invited for an interview at the discretion of the admissions
committee.
Rationale: Support for addition of supplemental admission requirements, based on a broader-
based admission philosophy that includes consideration of both academic potential and
person-based qualities necessary for the profession of nursing.
Applicants from post-secondary institutions are required to have a minimum 'C average, or
grade point average of 2.0 (calculated on a 4-point scale) on a 4-point scale. (Note: Due to
enrolment limitations, the academic standing required for admission is higher than the above
average and is subject to change each academic year.) Applicants who have completed college
and/or university courses should consult the Multiple Entry Option adviser in the School of
Nursing. The University will consider granting transfer credit for all appropriate post-
secondary courses completed. The following courses are required:
English (3-6) (ENGL 112 recommended)
BIOL 153 (6) or equivalent
MICB 153 (6) or equivalent DELETE
The following course is recommended: Microbiology (3-6) or Biology 112
Rationale: MICB 153 is only available to students registered in Nursing. Non-nursing
students cannot be accommodated due to reduced instructional resources in the Microbiology
department. The current equivalent MICB courses, namely MICB 201 and 202 are being
changed. Effective Sept/01, the MICB combination will become BIOL 112 and MICB 202.
BIOL 112 will require either CHEM 12 or CHEM 111 as a prerequisite. However, as CHEM
12 is not included in the admission criteria for admission to 1st year Nursing, it is
unreasonable to expect applicants with advanced standing to have either CHEM 12 or
CHEM 111. Equivalent microbiology courses at other universities or colleges are difficult to
obtain without significant additional science prereq-

Minutes of November 14,2001
Appendix A: School of Nursing Admissions Changes
uisites. The only distance offering is through Athabasca University, but it has a lab
component that requires attendance in Alberta for a 4-5 day period. This adds significant cost
to the applicant and/or makes it prohibitive to take. Microbiology will continue to be
recommended, but not required prior to admission with advanced standing.
Other Requirements
Applicants for admission for advanced standing must submit the following additional
supplemental admission requirements to Undergraduate Admissions, School of Nursing,
T201 - 2211 Wesbrook Mall, Vancouver BC V6T 2B5, by May 31:
1. Two letters of reference (structured form provided in the application package). It is
recommended that one referee be a teacher, instructor, employer or supervisor.
2. A current resume (structured form provided in the application package.)
3. A brief written personal statement about the applicant's reasons for requesting
admission to the School of Nursing and understanding of the profession of nursing.
(Format to be provided in the application package)
4. Supplemental Application Form and Processing Fee. A processing fee of CAD $107.50
must accompany the supplemental application admission forms that are returned to
the School of Nursing. This fee is non-refundable and should be made payable to the
University of British Columbia. No applications will be processed unless the fee is
received.
Inquiries and requests for a supplemental application package may be addressed to the School
of Nursing (information@nursing.ubc.ca)
Incomplete applications and late applications will not be considered.
Applicants with advanced standing who are accepted will be sent a letter of acceptance and
details about the registration procedures.
Rationale: Faculty in the School of Nursing have expressed concern that by using only
academic average and prerequisites as the basis of admission, we are missing strong
candidates who may not have the highest marks but who have other more "person-based"
qualities and experiences. Current literature suggests that gpa alone is not predictive of
success in BSN programs. Broader-based admission criteria are used by other professional
faculties and schools within the Health and Human Science professions with good results.
Letters of reference provide some indication of the ability of the applicant to be successful in
the academic program and of the skills and attitude the applicant has displayed in previous
academic or employment settings. A current resume provides some insight into the personal
skills, abilities, and experiences of the applicant. A brief written personal statement provides
some insight into the maturity and motivation towards the profession of nursing and the
understanding of the nurse's role in the health care system. A processing fee is required for the
increase in document processing that will necessitate additional support staff time.
 Vancouver Senate 12823
Minutes of November 14,2001
Appendix A: School of Nursing Admissions Changes
Admission for Registered Nurses
Registered nurses may engage in full or part-time studies either on campus, through distance
education, or a combination of both. The program may be completed in a minimum of 12
months full-time and a maximum of 6 years part-time after commencing the first nursing
course.
Rationale: Addition of this section provides a clearer explanation of this category of
admission.
Normally, admission to the School of Nursing requires a minimum 67% average (2.6 on a 4-
point scale) based on either senior secondary school graduation or at least 12 credits of
university transfer course work, whichever is most recent. No specific courses at the
secondary school level are mandatory for registered nurse applicants.
BC applicants applying as registered nurses for on-campus or distance study must hold
current practicing nurse registration in BC. Out-of-province applicants wishing to complete
the program by distance education must hold current practicing nurse registration in the
province in which they reside. International students must meet general eligibility criteria for
nurse registration in BC.
Applicants are required to provide evidence of ability to perform to the level of competence
expected of a new graduate as congruent with RNABC guidelines. Acceptable evidence
includes one of the following:
Rationale: Clearer wording.
1. Names of two referees from a current or recent (within three years) place of
employment in nursing.
2. Satisfactory completion of an RNABC-approved refresher course within three years
prior to admission. Satisfactory references are required from: a refresher course
instructor; a supervisory person in a nursing unit in which the applicant has had
clinical experience during or subsequent to the refresher course.
3. Graduation from an approved School of Nursing within the last three years; work
experience is not required.
Students presently completing a nursing diploma program can make application for a
conditional acceptance. A letter from the Director of the School of Nursing indicating the
anticipated date of completion of the program should be included with the application.
Official acceptance will only be granted upon successful completion of the RN examination
and RNABC registration or eligibility to register.
A maximum of 21 credits of course work completed at other institutions may be transferred
provided such work meets all the requirements of the University and the School of Nursing. A
maximum of 6 of the 21 credits may be granted for CNA certification or post-basic
continuing education health-related or nursing courses. Requests for such credits are
considered on an individual basis after admission to the program.
Rationale: Certification by the Canadian Nurses Association, and a variety of health-related
and nursing continuing education courses have been evaluated by the School, and are granted
advanced credit.
 Vancouver Senate 12824
Minutes of November 14,2001
Appendix A: School of Nursing Admissions Changes
Supplemental Application Form and Processing Fee
A processing fee of CAD$107.50 must accompany the supplemental application admission
forms that are returned to the School of Nursing. Out-of-province applicants are required to
pay an additional CAD$50. These fees are non-refundable and should be made payable to
The University of British Columbia. No applications will be processed unless the fee is
received.
Rationale: A processing fee is required for the increase in document processing that will
necessitate additional support staff time. The differential fee for out-of-province applicants is
necessary due to the additional time involved in assisting students in meeting program
requirements.
Re-admission
The School reserves the right to re-admit students and to stipulate conditions attached to readmission. Application for re-admission to the School will be reviewed on an individual basis.
Rationale: Simplification of wording to reflect current process for readmission applications.
Post-RN Program
Registered nurse students are required to complete a program of 45 credits, which consists of
27-33 credits of nursing courses, 9-15 credits of electives, and 3 credits of first-year English.
RN students will build a program in consultation with a faculty advisor.
