    Hi. I was accepted to the program (for RN) and I declined b/c I was already into 3rd semester at UCFV. I did take Nursing A&P @ Douglas tho, with Shamsa Jessa! Easy class! Have fun! I know a few girls who graded from there and moved to Kwantlen to get thier degree. Have a great time!

    Are you going into first year of the RN program? How long did you have to wait before you got accepted? I've applied to Douglas but for the LPN Bridge-in to the RN program....hopefully I can start that next year!!!

    I am just weighing all my options and just wondering what changed your mind to go into RN from LPN? Good news as well - there is only a semester wait to get into the Bringe-in program at Douglas. I was just wondering what school you went to for LPN? Also as a new graduate did you have to work bad shift times? And last question - How many shifts a week did you get? I would appreciate any reply to these questions. There is just so much to take in. Thanks alot.

    Hi,

    To answer your questions, I went to do my LPN because I wasn't sure if Nursing was for me. I am now applying for the RN program because I think there are way more opportunities for them than LPN's. I think Nursing is also in my blood, coming from a family of nurses. I graduated from Bow Valley College last month, which is in Calgary. I got a job at a fertility clinic full-time. However, I'm thinking of leaving it to get a casual and soon to maybe part-time position at the hospital. I found that working at the clinic, that I didn't use much hands-on nursing and was more doing office stuff. And I'm not comfortable doing phone calls too. I don't want to lose my nursing skills too early in the start of my career. The fertility clinic is really specialized but it has been a good experience so far. I have started to get my paperwork done to Douglas and I applied for this December and April. Hopefully all goes well with that, plus I'm eager to get back home to BC.
