  1. Bsn programs are harder than Adn
    It's a fact, not an assumption. Not sure where you are but when you take a diploma level class here you can't transfer them in leui of credit for an elective. Also, the material is much more watered...

  5. Are you an LPN?
    @Fiona I questioned this during a seminar. The explanation was that the healthcare profession was moving towards a standard of higher education, OT/PT were cited, but I can rattle off a number of...

    I'm in 2nd year now but I was put on a wait-list when I applied even though my marks were pretty good. I heard back in late October. If you can't wait just call them and ask them what your chances...

    May for winter intake is a bit late but you should fine if you meet the 80% cutoff. They won't let you know till late October though so waiting for a descion is a pain.

  8. Are you an LPN?
    Serious question. If LPNs can work in CC/Semi-CC areas whats the point in RNs existing? Geez, nursing is so fragmented.

  9. Before the Morning (Failed CRNE three times. what now?)
    The poster asked a legitimate question. Failing three times may be an indication of some serious deficiencies.

  10. Where the heck are all the jobs?
    The trick with AHS is getting in the system before you graduate whether it be nursing attendant or whatever. That way when you apply for an RN/LPN position you're considered an internal applicant and...

  11. exhausted all options..
    I feel for ya. I was in a similar situation. If you work during the school year to pay off tuition and living expenses, they tell you that you've made to much and don't qualify. If you don't work and...

  12. Frustrating CNO process for IENs
    It's already been explained to you. Regulatory bodies are meant to assess your ability to safely practice nursing, they arent in the business of educating IENs. Perhaps you should take up your...

  13. CBC article this morning on immigration/nurses
    Only anecdotal evidence I know, but I've observed foreign trained nurses whose spelling and grammer is on par with that of a grade 8 student. I'm then perplexed at how one has managed to write...

  14. CBC article this morning on immigration/nurses
    The key to this problem is demanding higher standards for nurses. Sorry, but a 4 year degree from a country where you finish high school at 15 cannot possibly be deemed as equivalent (we all know...

  16. CBL vs. Lecture Based
    You should try posting this in the Canadian section, Americans have no idea what CBL is. Search for the University of ALberta in that section and you'll find reviews about CBL (which I despise).

  17. Interventions without MD orders
    This isn't about my knowledge but nursing as a whole. My beef is that a nurse with 30 years experience has the same scope as a new grad.

  18. Interventions without MD orders
    This thread isnt isnt about judging whether I'm competent or not, which some people seem to think, despite being an honour student. You don't need to explicitly call someone a name for it to be an...

  19. Interventions without MD orders
    I see where you're coming from but I still think theres room for a lot more autonomy in nursing. Anyways, I've completed prereqs for medical school, not sure if that's the route i'll go though,...

    Actually, just finished 2nd year. It's a medication, but tylenol has some pretty basic contraindications and people take it all the time for minor ailments. If we know why to give the medication and...

  23. Average grades of Nursing Students (Canada)
    What are you smoking, 80% is considered a B+/A- not borderline failing. It's not easy to get an A in a nursing class, thats for sure. You must be American where grade inflation is rampant.
