BScN @ Ryerson after RPN Bridging Program at Centennial College

  1. Hello everyone.

    I just wanted to update that I am now at Ryerson University for my BScN 2016 (undergraduate program).

    Since I started in flex delivery at Centennial College for the 1 year RPN bridging certificate (2014-2015) then I did not have a choice but to continue in part-time schedule at Ryerson (BScN).

    My cumulative GPA at Centennial was 3.4 (just needed 3.0 for Ryerson). I am not going on my graduation this June 2016.

    Anyhow, flashback & fastforward, I got accepted at Ryerson and now on my 2nd semester out of seven (approximately to finish by winter 2018). My first semester was this winter 2016... second semester is this spring 2016.

    Since I was in the part-time schedule, my classes so far were pre-registered per semesters and only scheduled on Thursdays (evenings) [- would change during 6th & 7th semesters] except if taking electives for which are online or in class with varying days of the week.

    [Graduated PN Diploma at Seneca College 2013. Completed RPN Bridging Certificate at Centennial College 2015. Started BScN Undergraduate Degree Program at Ryerson 2016]

    Yes the Post-Diploma part-time program at Ryerson runs through the summer. Its 7 consecutive semesters unless you fall out of your cohort.

    I heard the program at Ryerson is easier/ more doable after bridging at Centennial. From your experience is this true?

    Hello,

    I find that the RPN bridging at Centennial - flex delivery was tough but doable. I was working parttime but I managed not to work during the most difficult times 1. doing the acute clinical because it had a lot of paperwork.

    Hello,

    Yes, the program at Ryerson is doable. I am still in the parttime program and I have time to work and do school. Sad part is I failed a nursing course and got delayed of my prospective completion date. But I am working as RPN now and doing all my classes online instead of in class. So it has some positive results out of it.

    Hello,

    I did fall out of my cohort and my trajectory is 9 semesters to finish now (~Dec. 2018). I needed to wait for 1 semester for the course to be offered again so time of course to be offered varies and that will lengthen your expected completion date.

    So my suggestion to everyone is focus and if you have hardship then let it be known. Seek help. My problem was just procrastination so I failed. However, I still have the positive outlook in life to change and persevere.

    In bridging we literally got one attempt to pass the course. At Ryerson, two attempts are allowed to pass a course so I would say less pressure there.
