Hello future nurses,
I am so excited to be starting nursing at BCIT in August!
For future applicants: To have a strong application make sure you have work experience, volunteer experience (preferrably healthcare), as well...
The August intake is typically more competitive than the January intake. It's 'easier' to get into the January intake simply because not as many people apply for that one. The January intake had approximately 550 applicants compared to the ~ 700 students who applied for August. When BCIT is narrowing down the applications, I was told that their standards are considerably higher because there are so many to go through.
Hopefully everyone here will hear back from BCIT soon!
