Nipissing RPN to BScN blended program

  1. I just got accepted in to the Nipissing bridge online.. I was doing Athabasca but with the current job situation i decided to stay local and work ft instead of heading out west..

    Is there anyone else who applied or is thinking of doing it??

    I just started this course, I am interested in knowing how it has gone for you? did you stay on target with the class layouts? ex. taking all the classes in their recommended semesters

    I have a few exemptions so my semesters are off.. I am taking the courseload of 2 a semester. I will be taking three later on this yr. u can take over pt courseload after you prove that you can get good grades with 2 courses. Some courses are heavier than others which is to be expected.

    I like it so far.

    Riya - if your work is not currently listed you can forward the contact info for your nurse educator to ****** and they can try to get your workplace onboard. A lot f places are coming onboard and there are over 500 people in Ontario doing this program. You should cotact ********** her email info is on the nipissing website and ask her any questions. My workplace was not originally on board either but is now.

    Hi, hope your studies in Nipissing are doing well. May I know how much did it cost you to start the first semester at Nipissing? I am interested in the course but I am also considering the financial factors as well. Thank you and hoping for your feedback.

    Hey Trishrpn80,

    Thanks for this post! I just wrote to Nippissing wondering if some of my college credits from another program will also work towards credit to the bridging program. I opted for this so that I could go right to work after completing the RPN and am happy to see that it is possible to take more than 2 courses per semester in order to get done a little quicker...another question I asked in my message to NU.
    What semester are you in so far? How long have you been at it? Would you mind me asking where you are working? I'm hoping to be in KW/Cambridge or Brantford...
