struggling to find out more BScN part time distance info- UBC anyone???

  1. I have been looking and LOOKING and searching and asking about which route of education to take for degree completion.

    I am currently doing a part time course with Ottawa U BUT IT IS TAKING FOR FREAKING EVER!

    I want a FAST paced, demanding course of study, that is still managable..... since I do work full time.

    I have been looking at the distance ed route with UBC and also looking at others ( Lakehead) for one.

    Can anyone and everyone who has experience with this give me input. Athabasca, yes have tried, just not what I wanted.... want a more structured, fast paced approach. Ryerson has a good one, but it is TOO FAR AWAY from me, to even try- 3 hours by car.

    Anyone? UBC? Lakehead? Anyone have any other input?/

    THANKS!

    I did my BSN at UBC in the early eighties... .
    In retrospect, some of the courses we had to take:Physical education and family nursing were invaluable and shows that curriculum planners had vision(although I did not appreciate that when I was an undergrad). UBC has an excellent reputation so I
    would imagine that the distance course would be worth looking at.
    How about McMaster University?
    University of Victoria?

    Try the University of Victoria. Thay have an excellent post-RN degree program, and, if you decide to go for a MSN, their BSN is recognized anywhere, unlike some other university BSNs or BHS degrees.
