    Referring to the microbiology, pathology, etc courses that are part of the Nursing program - NOT prerequisites - How do applicants know what courses are transferable for the program? Is there a list online that we have access to? Thanks!!

    I'm not sure if there's a list online available, but I believe once you've been accepted to the program, you can submit each individual class for a transfer credit. You would probably have to get a list from an advisor as the nursing courses are very program specific.

    You can google the bc transfer guide and see there if they have them listed

    To those 2nd/3rd time applicants that have been accepted (first a congrats!) - I know that taking LIBS 7001 and 7002/7021 are helpful towards getting in the 2nd/3rd time you apply. However, do you think 2nd time applicants that have not taken the LIBS classes will be successful in getting in?

    Any input/opinion/personal experience is much appreciated!!

    Does anybody know whether the GPA is calculated based on BCIT's required pre-requisites or on your overall GPA when you apply to the program?

    I am putting my application together this week. Best of luck to everyone!

    The GPA is based off the prerequisites, however if you have a low cumulative GPA, they will most likely not accept you.

    Yes, you need all your documents before you apply. You need to order a physical copy of your high school and post secondary transcripts, and scan them. However, after you apply, you can still submit additional documents (ie. reference letter) until the deadline. You'll also need to fill out a form which asks about relevant experience. At the end of your application, you'll have to pay a $100 fee. That's pretty much it.

    Hello!

    Just wanted to say a quick thank you to EVERYONE because just going through this thread has answered MANY of my questions but I was wondering for those who have already applied (or may have gone through the admissions process in the past), does BCIT not require references for volunteer/work experience? Is that something they ask for later on in the application process or is it simply not required?

    As far as I know, BCIT nursing does not ask for reference letters. I asked someone who was on the BCIT admissions committee if submitting a reference letter with my application would strengthen it, and she said that it was pointless to do so just because they receive so many, and it would be too time consuming to verify all of them. So, BCIT Nursing Admissions doesn't even bother to look at reference letters.
