UFV January 2013 BSN Hopefuls - page 15

Well yesterday was the application deadline for the University of the Fraser Valley's January 2013 BSN intake. I'm just curious if there are any other anxiety-ridden current applicants out there like... Read More

    I've been randomly lurking this thread for a couple of months even though I'm already in a BscN program. Congratulations to those who got in. For those who didn't don't give up. After being rejected twice ( and spending 15k of my own money) I came close to dropping out of university completely - The rejection left me depressed for a couple of months but I decided to give it one final fight - I worked my @$$ off literally night and day to boost my GPA and I was finally accepted. Trust me, IT IS worth it. Keep at it your hard work will pay off.

    My bad. The bridge LPN program is only 3 years. So, six in total.

    I do believe that once you have your LPN you can bridge into the third semester (2nd year) BSN program, and it is now a two year program. Like someone else was saying you do have to work for a bit (not sure if it has to be a whole year) but in either case if you want to be an RN I would wait. It seems to be a lot of extra time and money to go that route. I thought about just doing the LPN thinking I might not get into the RN program too and if its not what you want then I think your making the right choice!

    Also I think the last day for everything to be in for September 2013 is January 31.

    Not sure where you live but I upgraded my marks at langley education centre. Its a great school and they offer paper based and web based courses. You can finish as fast as you want. I finished BIO 12 in 5 weeks before the August deadline. Kinda stressful but it can be done!

    That was helpful losublime, thanks. When is the deadline to upgrade your courses for next intake?? January 31???

    Thanks novo and Losublime! Yeah I decided to try for September 2013. Right now I'm signing up for online classes to finish before January 31st. I spoke to melody and she said the thing I had to work on was my interview and that was the only thing noted. I can't prove that I've gotten better on my interviewing skills so most likely I will have an interview for next intake.. Atleast that's what they said. I just don't want to risk it with my prereq gpa. That's why I'm upgrading. I'm still pretty bummed out that I didn't make it but I'm feeling better. Come to think of it, September 2013 is still the same year as jan 2013 and if I do get in and do fast track, I will be able to catch up with the time I lost. *crosses fingers.*. I noticed a lot of the people on allnurses had to apply twice before being accepted. And I really hope that's the case for the rest of us.

    And Careubc you have to have your makes in by jan 31 otherwise they won't accept it and will just take that for the next intake. So now is a good time to sign up for online courses.

    Big fat rejection letter waiting for m3 when I got home today. I should have been 'better prepared' for my interview.

    I got a letter that said im on the waiting list , It didn't say anything I need to work on though . Guess I can volunteer more and upgrade online classes .

    That's good Legacy1255! At least you're on the waiting list.

    BaileyBee that's probably what I will have for my letter... But I'm pretty sure the next intake we will have interviews. Because the way they do it is they will look at the ones that previously applied and see what they needed to work on. We can't prove that we've gotten better on our interviewing skills so we should have an interview next intake. On the other hand, if it said that we needed to upgrade our marks then it's probably best that we do. That's something they can look at prior to getting an interview. I just plan on doing some upgrading just in case it get's even more competitive next intake. Who knows... I hope the rest of us will get accepted next intake. It would be great to catch up to the ones who got accepted this intake.

    I got my letter and didn't get accepted. I was wondering if anyone knows about the process for the Fall 2013 intake.
    The people that were interviewed for winter 2013 intake and didn't get in .. will they be for sure interviewed for the fall 2013 intake?

    In my letter it didn't say i need to improve academically but do you think i should? i'm so confused.

    Hey Abby12,

    People that were interviewed for jan 2013 intake doesn't guarantee interviews for next intake. Since you don't have anything to improve, you can either leave it or improve.. It's up to you honestly. It sure doesn't hurt to improve your marks but it might not guarantee anything. I wish I was sitting at 4 A's but I'm not and I'm sure it will be really hard for me to have 4 A's because of math. Math and I don't go good together lol

    I called in at the health sciences desk and talked to one of the program assistants She said that as long as you have a lot of volunteer hours and good grades we will get another interview for September. I have 3 A's and 1 B (in math). She said that my marks are good and i do not need to upgrade ! So im guessing you will get another interview as well ! Dont worry

    Thank you!! ... I think I need to upgrade so I can sit at 3 A's and 1 B. Hopefully I have time. :/
