    I just found this site and it sure is a great place for all of us Langara waitlisted people to find out more info! I'm #105 on the list now, with a projected start of September 2012. Sooner if we're lucky...

    Anyway, I have a question to current students about working while being in the Nursing program. There are 3 shifts available at my job: 6:30am to 4:00pm, 4:00pm to 1:30am, and 9:00pm to 7:00am. I'll definitely have to rule out the first one, but could one of the other two possibly suit the Langara schedule a day or two a week? Unfortunately I won't have enough cash saved up to be able to only go to school and I'm hoping you guys can help me plan.

    Thanks in advance!
    Hi there,

    I am on the waitlist for Langara nursing too, and I was wondering when did you get put on the waitlist? I got on around December.2009, and I got a letter last month that there were more than 100 people ahead of me and that my anticipated start date is Sept.2012. The thing is I have no idea whether I am in the early 100s or closer to the 200s..lol...Did you get this letter as well? Did your letter tell you your position on the waitlist?


    Thanks so much for any help you can offer

    Question: I am a Langara student but haven't applied yet for BSN program (because they stopped taking application until oct 2012 for the sept 2013 intake) but what are the chances of me to get in right away? I know they arent taking applications but will there still be a waitlist? Also does that mean the earliest i can apply is oct 2012 even if ill have all the requirements completed by then end of this year or i should anyways once im done everything? confusing, i know.

    Hey s.reddy. They're currently trying to get rid of the current waitlist and so will not be accepting applications until 2012. They changed the admission system and it is no longer first come first serve, but merit based. You should double check with the updated requirements since they've changed it. And because it's merit based, they won't know the admission standard until the they assess the intake in 2012.

    I love this site! I felt like i was the only one waiting forever to get into the program! My anticipated start date is sept 2012 also but i'm hoping to get in for January 2012! That would be ideal!
    I'm a little nervous to start cause i hear its really hard and i have a baby girl(14months) which is going to be a challenge. Anyone know what the class hours are like...are you going to classes everyday or is it like university where you can pic which classes suit your schedule and only go 3 days a week? just wondering...
    Cant wait to hear updates

    The classes are set. You pick either section 1 or section 2. There usually isn't too much difference between the sections; one might get out earlier on a Monday while the other will get out earlier on a Friday. There might be an earlier start on certain days for one section compared with the other. It usually evens out in the end. Most people pick sections based on what their friends pick.

    Term 5 and 8 are the Consolidated Practice Experiences which are only on Mon-Wed, although the instructor might want you to go practice skills in the lab on an occasional Thurs or Fri if s/he thinks you are rusty.

    Most semesters are 5 days a week.

    I'm not sure. As someone has said upthread, they have changed the evaluation process to get into the program from when I started 4 years ago. It sounds like you are in though, if they said you have a seat. Best person to talk to is the senior nursing secretary. Her name and contact information is on the faculty section of the nursing school part of Langara's website.

    Good luck!

    Hi there,

    I am also on the waitlist for the langara nursing program with an estimated intake of Sept.2012. How did you find out that you got a seat for January?

    Also, when did you get onto the waitlist? How long have you been waiting?

    Thanks for any help you can offer!

    My estimated start date was sept 2012 as well and I emailed *******, clerk specialist, and asked what number i was on the waitlist and she replied saying i was number 50 and was offered a seat for Jan 2012.
    I applied in the summer of 2009 so its been almost two years.
    I would email ****** ( her email address is on the langara nursing homepage) and ask her the same thing. I'm sure she'll let you know
    Good luck
