    Okay, I found out today that I have passed my biology pre-req, so I can announce that I got accepted to UBC too! Woohoo!

    Laura, I don't have any paid experience in hospitals. I did volunteer at St. Paul's for a while, and I do have a lot of other volunteer experience and work experience. As already stated, the questions are pretty general, and my impression was that any experience working with people is helpful. If you get a chance, volunteering in a medical setting would probably be useful though. I found for me it was helpful, not just for the school application, but to find out if I enjoyed being in that setting and working with sick people.

    Good luck!

    I was thinking today that it might be fun for the students who are starting this September to have a meet up somewhere, and get a chance to meet each other before school starts. Maybe a weekend meetup in a coffee shop somewhere central? Anyone interested?

    great idea... I live in Ottawa so unfortunately I won't be around until Aug. but if anyone wants to get together then, I would love to meet a few people before classes start in Sept.

    Hi all,
    Where did you guys hand in the acceptance forms? Are you supposed to hand it in the nursing office or in the student service centre?
    Thanks

    Hi everyone!
    Congrats to everyone who made it in! I was wondering if anyone who didn't get accepted has heard anything back yet? I am still waiting with my fingers crossed.

    Hi dream_girl,

    From what I know, the deadline for accepted students to respond to offer is June 15th, 2010. Maybe UBC Nursing will know who and how many people to move up from the waiting list after that date? All the best to you!

    I would call or email and ask if you still haven't heard anything. We do have to respond by the 15th but in my interview they said that they would let everyone know right around the same time if they got in or not and then offer those that they originally declined a position if some come up (people don't accept their offer).

    Does anyone know what happens next? I sent in my acceptance and paid my deposit, but I have no idea what comes next. Am I suppose to register for classes or does it happen automatically? How do I know what immunizations I need to get before we start?

    Any info would be great. I live in Ottawa Ontario so I'm a little far from UBC and I just want to make sure I have everything in order before I move out there.

    Thanks!

    You'll get an information package from the school as soon as they finalize their intake. It'll include the immunizations info, a class list, a book list, when and how to register for your classes and all the data (student number, faculty advisor etc) that you'll need.

    Hi there,

    I would really appreciate if someone can let me know if UBC Nursing Program would allow its students to take an extra course outside of the program STT. Thanks in advance!!

    No courses allowed outside the Standard timetables...the standard timetables require you to take 18 credits per term, making it 36 credits per year. So you won't have room for any other courses. And trust me, the nursing program is enough to keep you on your feet without adding anything on top of that.
