General-Information.pdf (something like that)
Congrats on your admission to the program.
May 12, '13Sorry, I must be visually incompetent. I didn't realize you meant GRAD date.
That I'm not too sure. I'm sure they will send us further information once the program commences.
May 12, '13No worries!
That was still a great help! Im guessing may of 2016 when we finish exams, so its not exactly 3 years then. Thanks for the reply
May 13, '13How's everyone doing on finding CPR-HCP? Think it would be worth it if I ran one or two in Coquitlam/Burnaby before the program starts?
Also a reminder to join the August 2013 Nursing Facebook group (I can't link it or I break the ToS).
May 15, '13Hey everyone, I've received acceptance for August 2013 as well!
I was thinking of deferring to January but decided not to as I saw that they've changed to requirements for the January intake - A&P has to be completed within 3 years and I took mine about 4-5 years ago. So I'm starting for sure in August just to be safe! Now I just really need to brush up on A&P until classes start because I feel like I've forgotten almost everything which is making me super nervous!
Anyway, I was also looking at the course schedule and we have microbiology in Level 2. I've already taken it when I was in university over in California... anybody have past experiences/know of anyone that was able to transfer their microbiology course to BCIT?
Thanks and congrats to everyone that's made it this far
May 15, '13@ ilovesushi, congrats! I don't know about the microbiology but I was wondering where you saw the course schedule? I'm also starting in August but I don't see anything in mybcit. I was thinking we would find schedules there after immunizations/criminal checks are completed?
May 15, '13Ilovesushi,
Congrats, welcome to the team!
That's a good idea, an A & P refresher will serve you well. I'm doing that too at the moment. As for microbiology, you would have to apply for a transfer credit to determine if your microbiology course will transfer over.
Here's the link:
The tentative course list is on the BCIT website.
May 16, '13does anyone know anything about the criminal record check? Are we still waiting for their email instruction?
May 16, '13Hey guys! Has anyone asked if there will be an orientation rescheduled at campus? I don't really like the idea of having an orientation just being online
May 16, '13They are supposed to mail a criminal record package to be completed in a specific time frame so we can wait on that. I'm sure if we don't have an orientation, the first week of classes will have orientation incorporated into it.
May 16, '13Maybe this is a stupid question lol but what do the immunization records have to include (the shots that we need) because i think i may be reading something wrong in the email, but it just says immunization records but not which vaccinations we need. Help?
