Mount Royal to eliminate international student fees for nursing bridge programs

March 30, 2009

As of May 1, nurses enrolled in the Internationally Educated Nurses program or the Bridge to Canadian Nursing program at Mount Royal College will be exempt from the college's international student tuition fee assessment, effectively cutting tuition by half. The college made the move as it appeared some foreign-trained nurses were having difficulty making the international fee schedule. The tuition change will affect about 140 international nurses enrolled in the programs in both Calgary and Edmonton. Calgary Herald
