    You definitely aren't alone on this one
    I graduated RPN spring '16 and I've only managed to get agency work per diem. I've been actively looking for a permanent/full-time position for over six months now; it's been VERY discouraging.
    especially when you see other people receiving full-time job offers.

    I hope you're able to find something soon. I see a lot of postings for Toronto and the GTA, not a lot of call backs though

    If you've never took chem or bio could you even get into the program?? Most places I applied to said it's a requirement to have at least a 60% from bio and either chem or physics to get into the program.

    can somebody explain to me how the 6 semesters in two years fit
    The course load is spread over the full year going from September to August where as full time only goes until April and has the summer off

    Instead of the school year being September to Aprils the flex program adds another semester in the summer. It just spreads the course load over a full year so it runs September to August

    I just finished my first semester of RPN flex at centennial college!

    I'll be starting semester 1B in January. I was wondering if anyone happened to have copies of PNUR 104 and 105, and PATH 122. I would love to look over them and get a rough idea of what these classes are going to be like.

    Thanks!!

    definitely things to consider.

    What it really comes down to is making the best decision for yourself. i'm currently taking the RPN program at Centennial College and would like to leave the option open to bridge to RN in the future. at this point in time i don't know what the future holds. i've been debating what career path i'd like to try and get into (well more so i mean what area of nursing, i've found myself interested in OR but not really sure if that's the right place for me)

    They try to keep the flex program to only 2-3 days a week. I only have classes on Tuesday and Thursday.

    I had applied for both full time and flex and was wait listed for full time but got accepted into flex. Which was my first choice so I was happy with that.

    It's easier to get into January as less people tend to apply so it's not as competitive.

    I got into centennial flex September 2013 and so far like it a lot.

    The flex program is really worth it. The work load is just so much easier to handle and you can likely be exempt from some classes (communication and developmental psychology). So you may just have three class your first semester. So worth it

    I start RPN at Centennial College this week and am really looking forward to it.

    I have already completed a couple of classes online: Developmental Psychology and Perspectives on Human Sexuality.

    I really enjoyed these classes and have no desire to sell/part ways with these textbooks.
    I personally feel like they're good resources that may be good to have in the future when writing papers etc.

    Anyway, my question is: What would you do? Do you feel it's beneficial to keep your books after you've completed a class/program or do you find it just collects dust on your shelf?

    a side note, i'm a bit of a nerd and absolutely love having books lol. so i think regardless i'll be keeping the books just for the sake of having them. more so i'm wondering if you feel i can gain any additional use out of them as i pursue my studies as a nursing student.

    Thanks!!

    Lol for some reason I completely missed that you're not flex.

    You may have flex students in your class. Depends on how they have it set up. I met a couple girls who are full time (entering their second year) and they had some flex students in some of their classes.

    Hi! I was wondering if anyone could provide a list of good items to bring on the first day of school.

    I'll be starting flex at centennial on Tuesday!! Very excited but nervous as well.

    What are some items you recommend bringing or having to start the course? Thanks!

    Also the reason that you couldn't use pre health to apply for BSCN is that it simply doesn't meet the pre requisites required to enter the program.

    Durham also had another class (I forget what they called it) that was specifically designed to prepare you for university since the requirements were a bit different for those programs.

    Look around, there are quite a few options available to you and it doesn't have to be a huge expense either. Honestly I loved my pre health class. The CE staff at Durham was very helpful and really made themselves available to answer your questions and help you succeed.

    Pre health isn't a waste of money if it helps you get where you need to be. However with that said, I didn't even pay for mine as it was covered by the government. I did mine at Durham college through the continuing education department.

    If you call Durham you can speak to their CE department and they'll give you all the necessary info.

    From there I was able to take my pre health certificate and apply at any school. I applied at Durham, George brown college and centennial (I could have also applied at Seneca but it wasn't a school I was interested in personally).

    My pre health course at Durham college was 22 weeks long. It was a bit condensed but covered all the course material. We did chemistry, biology, math and English. If you already had a credit from high school then you could be exempt from that class (there was a girl who didn't have to take English and a guy who didn't need math).
