    Hi guys!
    I am applying to Centennial College, practical nursing.
    I have a question about skills assessment test, sorry if the topic has already been raised.
    But what this test is about for nurses?
    I found this:
    - Applicants who do not meet the language criteria must take the Centennial College English Skills Assessment and score 170 or 171.(http://www.centennialcollege.ca/Programs/ProgramOverview.aspx?Program=9350)
    It means that for proospect nurses only Englist test would apply?

    This test assesses your English proficiency to determine which English course you would enrol in. The 170 or 171 you indicated are the two different level English courses but 170 is for those who are ESL. There is a third course for those who score lower than the 170 level and if they have to complete that they will have to take 170 afterwards.

    Male N You are aware it will take several weeks to months to get a work permit or student visa and a medical will be required due to nature of being health care

    Just wondered because according to cic website a study permit is only issued with acceptance letter from college/course and yet a previous post states you are applying to the college for practical nursing. Just make sure study permit can be moved across if you applied for a different course. If you are not getting answers from the International office can you not visit them in person to get your answers?

    I am currently a student in Manitoba. So yes, the study permit was issued based on a acceptence letter.
    The CIC site says: "You may change your school, program and/or field of study without applying for a new study permit. You do not need to apply for a change to the condition of your study permit, either. You may continue to use your study permit as long as it is valid".
    Unfortunetly Toronto is far away from Winnipeg. I've sent today many letters to different persons responsible for internationals. Hope tomorrow will get a reply

    PS: I am already conditionally accepted by Georgian College, but I need to take that HOAE exam next week. So Centennial would be my backup plan, plan "B" )

    Glad you have checked things out as many times we see people who haven't done their research. Best of luck

    It is a computerized test that will assess your reading and comprehension. It will not affect your admissions but will determine which English course you will be enrolled in.

    The international department woke up. Here what I got from them:
    "There will be a mathematics and English placement test"
    Ok, gone refreshing Math knowledge...

    I just wanted to jump onto this thread. I'll be starting RPN flex in September 2013. I'm really excited but also a bit nervous.

    I've already take developmental psychology online and my elective GNED (perspective on human sexuality) I'm taking online now too.

    I start global citizenship GNED 500 on May 7th and Comm 170 in July.

    My goal is to lighten my course load as much as possible (I have two small children) and I'd like to get a part time job as well.

    Is anyone else starting RPN flex at centennial in September ?
