- 1Mar 8, '12 by MPKHQuote from Chhun3Sorry to burst your bubble but the school you go to really doesn't factor into hiring decisions. What managers and HR care about are 1) is the nursing program you attended legit and accredited? 2) that you actually received the education you claim you did, aka your degree 3) did you pass your CRNE and do you hold a current licence to practice and finally 4) how well you sell yourself during interviews...your "fit" so to speak.BCIT definitely have a good nursing program but the fact that you attended BCIT will not make you more attractive to hire than another candidate from another school.Good luck with your application.Fiona59,I totally agree with you, the institution that you enroll in shouldn't determine how good of a nurse you will be. However the world doesn't work like that, it's fake. I think going to a recognized nursing school will have a slight influence of getting a job. But yes, it shouldn't matter which nursing school you go to.

I've looked on the BC transfer guide and it doesn't seem like LIBS 7001/7002 have an equivalent. I do know that you need an additional 6.0 or so credits to complete the program and there are many classes at other schools that go towards those.
Also just wondering, has anyone heard anything from BCIT yet? My online application has been "pending department review" for what feels like forever!!

How competitive is it to apply to BCIT's nursing program? I'm also thinking of applying, but I just realized that I will need 30 credits of post secondary education, aside from my previous nursing education. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

If that's the case w/ post-secondary credits, which courses can I take prior to applying for the nursing program at BCIT?I was looking at their FAQ and it shows which courses I can take prior to applying, but unfortunately, it works out to a total of 21 credits. What else could I take to augment those credits?
