    Just wanna ask what course you're taking up to? Rpn or Rn?

    George Brown College offers online courses as well. and it's closer to Mississauga. They also offer bursaries.
    I should check GB out. do you have any info about their offers there? and I have no clue how "bursaries" work or how to apply for it...

    How did you prepare for the rpn exam?

    I enrolled myself for RPN exam review. but honestly it still was more like a self review still. it's pretty much the same as getting an RPN review material and reading it cover to cover. I also borrowed books from the library .. whatever review materials I can get. and since line-up for nursing review materials are pretty long, I suggest you have it reserved online at least a couple of weeks earlier (depending on the number of reserves done on the book).

    Depends on your location. Which is closer to you? Both schools are accredited and accepted by hospitals. A lot of people in GTA go to george brown college.

    Have you considered the bridging program from RPN to BScN? I know some IENS that completed the bridging component just to get acute positions as RPNs. Some continued towards their BScN and some settled for the bridging post-grad certificate.
