    Hi I have a question for all the nursing students who are in Humber, when exactly do we wear scrubs? I know school starts on tuesday, but do I have to purchase this right now, or later on in the upcoming months! I'm a little worried if anyone can answer it would be helpful. Thank you!

    Later months. You won't need your scrubs for a while

    Just started Humbers RN nursing program! Any advice how to manage all the reading (which is a lot), Anyone use any techniques to making it easier or unnecessary to do all the readings? Especially in the text book (Relations and professions are very dry)!

    1. I would suggest organizing your time with readings, map out when you will read a section from each class. Example: printing out blank monthly or weekly calendars. It's helpful to read ahead of class so you have a better understanding when it's discussed in class, and just review later (realistically, this can't always be the case...the readings are pretty heavy on top of assignments and studying). But don't let it pile up, break up your readings into chunks or read all the shorter ones first...but the more that becomes piled up, it'll seem harder to tackle.

    2. When it comes to articles, I used to read it on my way to class (I took the bus and subway to Humber). I left the heavy texts at home and read everything else on my breaks at school.

    3. I also recommend gathering a small study group to discuss the readings and materials, it helps to summarize what you've read and figure out what's important.

    Sometimes you can't do all the readings but you'll pick up which ones are the most important to go over. There are some courses that the prof make really great slides, and the book just supplements the class so you do not have to read every chapter of the book.

    Also make sure you get enough sleep and attend class regularly. The instructors will guide your readings through their lectures. This saves A LOT of time because you're not wasting it reading information that you don't need.

    Thanks for the guys! Helps to clarify my organization relative to my major priority's.

    So far I am with/ahead of the class on everything except relations/professions. The thing is that the readings are so long and I don't really know how to study for them. See relations/professions focus on aspects of nursing relations which continuously overlap with eachother, so there is no concrete factual information I can get. My question is, should I study for these two subjects by taking notes, repeating the key ideas or how should I do this?

    Plus they involve lots of readings, so I would not like my time to go to waste and not retain a good deal of information in the process!

    Depends what works for your learning style because everyone is different. Taking pages of notes every day is often not effective and you won't read them anyway.


    I used to highlight text and make small notes in the margins after reviewing the chapter summaries. That way I had the overall picture and my reading was focused. I also made brief notes a week prior to my tests which reinforced the concepts. Aside from this, my note taking was limited.

    I noticed that many people who were taking pages of notes without a plan often performed worse on tests than those of us who used the methods I've described.

    Ultimately, you will need to figure out what works for your learning style, but I can assure you that you will not have time to read entire chapters or sit for hours taking notes.

    Hay guys, just wanted to bump this incase anyone was considering Humber, so far so good! I'm loving the program

    Glad to hear the program is going well. I got accepted last year into the Second Entry program. Turned it down to save more money. I've applied again and am very impatiently waiting on them to make a decision...again

    Hopefully I get to start soon

    Hello fellow students,

    I just got accepted to Bachelor of Nursing and I am starting in september!

    I just had a few quick questions, after reading through the entire thread:

    How do we pick courses? I mean I want to have priority selection and change my courses based on my daily commute. Can you choose individual courses or are they course blocks?

    What exactly are clinicals and labs? Are they like lab reports, and experiments. As for clinicals, i read that it is a pass/fail basis. Who chooses if you pass or fail, and what exactly constitutes a fail?

    How much time do we spend at school per day roughly? If someone could upload one of their schedules that would be of great help, as I want to see how the classes and stuff are laid out.

    How's the course for Males? I mean I will be a minority something I am not used too. Is there discrimination? Are boys like hot commodities in class, because thats an issue I would love to have!

    And, if i've read correctly, If a student fails a course during the year, they will not be able to go on to next semester and will have to wait an entire year, until that course is offered again that same semester only next year.

    Thanks in advance for the replies!
