I know of a nursing student who withheld the fact that she had university credits when she applied.
So basically, the rule is that when you apply to this 4-year BScN program if you have university credits you can only
apply on the basis of those credits. You need 12 units all together to be eligible (most standard courses are three units each so basically you would need to have taken 4 one semester courses.) If you had fewer units you would have to go back and get the credits so that you had 12.
Once you have uni level credits it does not matter about how great your high school grades are or if you got great grades in a community college program (they are not factored in at all)
Now, as I have alluded to above, there are other ways you can apply to this degree program . One way is to complete a pre-health science program at a community college. A lot of people get very high averages in these programs and go on to enter the BScN program, getting in with previous university is harder on the other hand because most people struggle to have the 80 percent average at the university level to gain acceptance. Similarly, the admission averages when applying from high school are in the mid to high 90 range (which many ppl struggle to obtain especially given the HS prerequisites)
So I don't know about this persons grades or how many credits they got at university but I do know they went and revived credits, but applied to the BScN program and only disclosed they had done a year of pre-health at community college. So basically, it seems they cheated someone else out of a spot in the program.
The question is should I report this girl ? if I do report them is admin at the school of nursing allowed to turn a blind eye at their discretion? I could see admin concluding that the policy is stupid bc she is a competent student, and when you think about it is kind of a stupid policy. Ex if person A takes pre-health and gets a 95 percent average and person B takes pre-health gets a 95 percent average but also did a semester of university and got a 60 percent average with those credits does that make person B less qualified ?
I am from Canada if that helps contextualize things, and community college and university are 2 distinct things and the difficulty level is very different. Even the community college pre-health would be at a lower difficulty level that grade 12 university prep courses.
