UFV January 2013 BSN Hopefuls - page 3

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

    Ummm there's three electives I believe: one of anthropology, psychology, or sociology; one that's any 100 level course; and one that is nursing related, so we can't do it until we're in the program. And then we have the option to take English 105, Math 104 or 106, and Anatomy and Physiology I and II (with permission). I'm working on my English, Math, and Anthropology right now and I already have previous courses from UFV that will count toward the 100-level elective.

    I went snooping through old posts again today on a bunch of different websites, and although I don't know exactly what days people got their info session letters, I noticed that the majority of the posts were posted around September 15 from last year saying they had just received it. Fingers crossed it comes by Friday! I want to know if there will be an essay topic in it, or if it will be like last years where you're not given a topic and you have to answer three questions in paragraph from at the info session.

    This draw out process is almost cruel.

    Hi everyone. I'm so glad this thread exists. I haven't received a letter yet either, and I live in Abbotsford. However, I did have something on my mind from having applied to the previous intake that I thought maybe someone here would be able to shed some light on.

    At the September 2012 intake information session, we were told that Anatomy and Physiology I and II now have a lab component. Before that, students waiting to get in were able to take Anatomy and Physiology I and II through other schools such as TRU (Thompson Rivers University) online where there was no lab component. I was wondering if anyone else had heard if UFV was not accepting these courses anymore. I paid a ton of money and put in a lot of hours to complete them.. so I hope I get credit !

    I guess I'm hoping I'm not the only one in this situation... that way we could have some leeway.

    Hi FoxRain.

    Not sure if it will transfer or not as TRU is not on the acceptable options for transfer credit page.

    Im taking the first part of Anat & Phys at Trinity Western right now. And the lab section is a HUGE part of the course. I found out a couple days ago that they only transfer from another school if you have both parts (HSC 111 AND HSC113). If I get into UFV for January then I will not receive credit for the HSC 111 I'm doing right now.

    Not cool.

    I hope yours transfer over. It sucks to put so much time and money into something and then have to do it over again.

    Yeah Anatomy & Phys I can't take yet in my post-secondary... As for anthropology, I took cultural anthropology but I am not sure if that will count for nursing. I didn't know we have to take Math 104 >.<! I dislike math so much but I'll do that asap if I don't get into the program this year. ... I still haven't received my letter so hopefully tomorrow or next week. I just want the process to start already so I can feel like I'm somewhat getting somewhere-- do you know what I mean?

    Thanks losublime for your reply.

    Could you perhaps link me to that page? I can't seem to find it on the UFV website. I did both HSC 111 and HSC113 equivalents at TRU as advised by a counsellor at UFV. However, it's been almost 2 years so I thought maybe they no longer accept it as there is no lab component. Maybe I can ask if they'll take my TRU grades for the lecture portion, and I can do just the labs. Ahh, I don't know.

    Hmm, you think you could take the second part of Anat & Phys at TWU in the summer? even if you get in for January? I hope that works out for you as well.. if not, at least you'll have somewhat of an heads up for what to except in class the first semester if the same systems get covered!

    Hey riri.g I took stats Math 104 at UFV and it's not a very difficult math course at all!! Honestly, I found re-taking Math 11 harder than the Math 104! It's just an introductory statistics course, so no funky confusing algebra.. or things of that sort. I think you'll do fine .. especially because most of it is relied on the computer. You make graphs and stuff. I hope that helps give you some sort of an idea.

    Hey Foxrain.

    http://www.ufv.ca/Assets/Faculty+Of+Health+Sciences/Acceptable+Options+for+transfer+credit+for+A$!26P. pdf

    Here is that link. It is found on the FAQ page.

    You should definitely call one of the ladies in the health sciences department. They will l be able to answer your question regarding that transfer credit.

    And I didnt think about taking part 2 it in the summer! Thanks so much for that suggestion!

    Still no letter today. Boo.

    Got the letter! Finally. Info session is next Monday night.

    It says we have to write an essay, but that we are given three questions to answer "which will focus on our thinking skills". So it must not be a formal essay then? More like question and answer paragraphs?

    Hello Everyone
    So happy I found this website!
    I have received my letter informing us about the information session next monday and I am freaking out! I just want to know my chances on getting into this program and hope I do!

    Got my letter too!! ahhhh!! Now I'm SO NERVOUS!

    I'll see you guys on Monday night! (not that we'll know who each other is...but that'll be the fun in it! haha). Good luck on the essays everyone!!

    Oh and losublime, I read on the forum for Septembers intake that it's not technically an essay anymore. It is just three questions to answer in paragraph form. Thankfully, since they say we only get 45 minutes for it. I can't write an essay that fast (well...a good one anyway)
