UBC Undergraduate nursing program 2008/2009Register Today!
- by kendall16 May 7, '08Hello everyone,
I have applied to UBC nursing for the 2008/2009 school year. I am really nervous about getting in because last year I did not.
If there are any people who have graduated from the program or who have applied recently or even in the past, would you please provide some information:
What was the GPA that you had?
How much volunteer experience did you have?
What was the interview like?
If you are in the program: What is the program and instruction like?
I am really hoping to get some valuable information. I am very anxious about getting into the program, but it is so up in the air. It would be better if it was based solely on GPA because then you would know if you are in or not.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
- May 7, '08 by student456do you mean the university of british columbia in canada?
- May 8, '08 by kendall16Hello,
Yes I did mean University of British Columbia. I apologize for being unclear about that. Are you attending UBC or know someone who is? Any information would be really helpful. Thanks and I look forward to your reply. Take care.

- May 14, '08 by kendall16Hi Codeblue,
I have applied to UBC accelerated nursing program. I do not know of anyone else who has done so as well.
What is your current GPA that you are applying with? As well would you be able to provide me with information about your extracurricular activities.
I applied last year and was not offered an interview. I have spent the last year improving my GPA and re-wrote my admissions essay.
Is this your first time applying? Do you know of others who have also applied? What were their GPA's? The process is very subjective, which makes it very nerve wracking because you may or may not get an interview.

- May 27, '08 by mandy23hey everyone, just wondering if u know when we get to find out if we get an interview for fall 2008/09 at UBC? thanks
- May 27, '08 by kendall16Hi Mandy,
Well I know one person who already knows when their interview is. I believe that by the end of the week, they will have decided who was selected for an interview.
Have you by chance tried to contact the department?
If you don't mind my asking, what is your background and perhaps even GPA? I am concerned because I have not heard anything and I have been waiting for two years to get into the program.
