I just got accepted by UofC Degree-holder program for 2013 January. I am studying for my first term at the U of Lethbridge in Alberta since September. I wonder whether I should change my school.
Both are 24 months' programs. UofL is actually not bad, from the second term on, the students will spend 2-3 days/week in practicum. We have small class size. I have spent $3000 for tuition fees and textbooks this term.
I want to know something about which school will be benefit my school life, education preparation for the nursing job, job opportunities in the future?
I personally like small cities. but Lethbridge is not convenient in terms of traffic, grocery shopping, and making friends. I'm thinking there are more choices in Calgary.
Thanks for the information, Dela and Novo. I tried to avoid the PBL style from U of Alberta, but still not quite. At UofL this term we only have three courses, but we are kept busy all the time to do assignments. However, many paper reading and some presentation are not for marks at all. As Novo quoted, we counted the time by months, by days.
I will phone the advisor at UofC to ask the teaching style and practicum settings. Those are really important for consideration. I checked online and some ppl said it seemed the newly changed program is supposed to be a better nursing program compared to before.
