Fall 2018 Centennial/Ryerson RPN to RN Bridging

  1. Hi guys! I was accepted into the Centennial/Ryerson RPN to RN bridging full time for this fall and I have a couple questions!

    1. Which hospitals/areas are clinical placements held?
    2. Are there clinical placements outside of the GTA? Any near Hamilton or Halton?
    3. How do community placements work? Is there a central office that you would meet your preceptor at and then ride along in his/her car from patient to patient?
    4. Anyone have a sample of the schedule? What time do classes usually start and finish at?

    thanks so much!!

    Hey, I have a question: are you already licensed as an RPN? I applied as well but I'm still waiting to hear back. Sorry I can't be of much help but I did hear that for 1st semester placements you're in a group and for second you're alone. There was a user on here who did the bridging at Centennial/Ryerson and she was at Western during 1st sem and a local clinic for 2nd sem. I think it's your responsibility to get to and from placement just like placements in the RPN program. Congratulations on the offer!

    Hi iveys! I am already a licensed RPN, so that's probaby why I heard back fairly quickly. Are you applying to the full time fall program? Hope you get it, maybe we'll see each other there!

    Thanks so much for all the info! I figured getting to and from placement is my responsibility, but wasn't sure about following a community nurse that does home visits.

    From reading more stuff online, seems like classes start at 0830am and finish sometime between 1530 and 1830 depending on the class.

    Hi! I have yet to write the CPNRE and am in my final semester at Algonquin College. I received my acceptance for fall 2018 on February 1st. My gpa was 3.8.
    Do you know when we need to put a deposit down to save our seat in the program? I can't find anything about paying or registering for fall 2018 on Mycentennial.
