I suggest you read the many threads here on the dismal state of nursing jobs in Alberta
I had no intention of being rude in my comments. I'm simply not one for posting long comments when using my mobile device.
Before you start classes make sure they will transfer towards a CC degree and ultimately towards any future plans such as BSN, masters etc
I don't see anybody being vindictive or laughing at you.
It's unfortunate that you've only recently found AN and all the current information we have on the sad state of nursing employment.
Read through the forums here on AN and you'll find your reality check.
I'm curious as to why your unit doesn't have fall prevention protocols in place already.
From what you've written I can see a few reasons why you've not been hired.
Is this a homework question?
What research have you done so far?
Give us some of your ideas.

I binge watched Gossip Girl on Netflix, all 7 seasons.
If you don't like science you won't like nursing
Last fall I stubbed my baby toe. The pain was terrible. I managed to fracture one of the small bones behind the toe. It took 2 months to heal. All I could do was wear super sturdy shoes. I did get a cortisone shot and that helped for a few weeks. But getting the shot in the foot was in itself an intolerable amount of pain for 60 seconds
Congratulations OP and good luck in your new career.
Today was my last day working as a nurse. I'm off in a new direction and big adventure.
Of course if this new career pursuit doesn't work out I can always return to homecare nursing.
I don't hate nursing, I'm just ready for something new.
Follow the syllabus and read the chapter ahead of time
