    Hi all,I currently have quite a bit of transferable skills, about 100 post secondary credits including the 3 English and 6 Psych classes a healthcare certificate that includes a 5 month rotation in a hospital, volunteer experience, with transferable skills from my current job. The only problem is that my GPA suffered because of my first year and I stand currently at a 62%. What are the chances of getting in to the nursing program if I have any? anyone every been able to get in with that GPA?

    Hi kabachi! I was just accepted, and I had some pretty terrible marks in my first year of university, including a couple of fails (stupid calculus). I think that these kinds of things, when put into the context of your marks increasing as you progress through school, are totally okay. My gpa isn't all that much higher than yours, and your experiences outside of school sound awesome! Hope that helps.

    Hey ladies! Just wanted to update you about what the nursing department said to strengthen application. They said take 7001 and/or 7002 and a human anatomy class! Hope this helps! Good luck!

    Hey kabachi, my grades suffered just as bad too but as long as you have shown significant improvement later on you should be fine. They may ask you to show how well you can do so if you are taking classes now do really well and you still have a chance!

    I'll be so happy if that is the case! I'm just confused cause two days ago they said it was one or the other - you forfeit your spot on the holdlist once you reapply.... ????

    I don't think the system will let you reapply when you are on the waitlist/holdlist
