Jun 7, '02I live in Canada also and have the same problems of Cindy/Canada - all I can say is that life is great.... I'm only 22 but with all that is and one lil guy being a single mom - it will be a challenge.... but you've come so far now .... just keep going... do everything and anything... and apply at other colleges and universitys... apply for medical related topics (lactation courses, med term, healthy living night courses... nutritional courses ) alot of it is related and has to do with nurseing.... Aim for BScN and get the LPN...... Follow your dreams... and hang in there....

Also the nurses here have a wealth of information they all seem more then willing ready and able to share it... :P
Jun 29, '02Dear Cindy,
I have been a paramedic here in New Brunswick for over 6 years working 24 hour shifts back to back for 4 to 6 days in a roll. I want to take the nursing program but it is 4 years long and I am 41 with one child still at home. So.......... I like you signed up for the lpn course.(It was the rna course but recently changed to lpn). I know that many also in this area didn't get accepted. I was blessed in the fact that I was accepted since I applied early plus could prove that I was already in the medical field. I also work part time in a nursing home here. I do know for a fact that alot of the ones that didn't get in are taking the long distance course. Also, I would check employment Ins. and see what they can do for you. I am going through a program called Skill and development which is helping pay for my course and living expenses as I have to move away from my family for the year and half. I am able hopefully come home on weekends. Don't give up your dream., just find a different route to get there. If the Rn course would ever come back, I would love to take that but 4 years of nursing is to much for me. I will be retired before I have my expenses paid.
Take care and God bless,
