  1. 0
    Hi, i'm a grade 12 student who is thinking to become a nurse in the future
    1. since UBC and BCIT both need at least 2 years of post secondary(30 or 60 credit) before applying to nursing program then which program you recommend to go first? i know that BCIT recommend psychology but what about UBC?

    2.is it a good idea to take psychology in UBC then transfer to BCIT's nursing? if not then which college/university you guys recommend?

    3. i was thinking to go to Langara but Langara is no longer accepting any application for nursing program this year. is it a good idea if i work for a year and go back to school after? (to earn more money and experience by volunteer at a hospital)

    4. other than those college/university i mentioned above is there any other college/university that have good nursing program?

    for each school look at which subjects they require you to have. e.g., how many bio, chem, psy credits do you need to be eligible to apply.

    no, because each university will only accept a certain amount of credits from another university even if the course you took in ubc is similar to the one in the other school you're contemplating to transfer to. also each university has their own set of admission requirements. remember, universities are businesses... they have to make money somehow. so if you decide to transfer from one school to another, you'll probably loose 1 year. not to mention all the paper work and red tape.

    well it depends on what you feel like doing. if you think it's good for you to "feel out" the health care setting before you invest in becoming a nurse, then do so. would i personally do it? no, but that's just me.

    4. other than those college/university i mentioned above is there any other college/university that have good nursing program?



    good luck!

    thank you so much for your information. so basically everything i asked is all depends on which school i'm applying to and so i guess the best way is to ask them directly. thank you

    I totally agree. It totally depends on what school you intend on attending. If it's grade point average, try taking some courses that you are good at, whether it be pscyhology, chemistry or biology. That way achieving high grade point average will be easier and your chances of entering the school of your choice will be all that more doable. There's no point taking two years of psychology and scoring a horrible GPA. Take that into consideration.
