Athabasca U-RPN to BN

I plan to take the RPN to BScN (or BN as the case may be). I am getting confusing information about Athabasca U. A fellow nurse told me last night that I can do clinicals in Ontario and that the university finds placements for me. I asked for info from Athabasca and received a "general" email in reply that says I must travel to Alberta for clinical (3 times) but consolidation can take place in Ontario. Has anyone taken this degree program through Athabasca that can help me figure this out??

Thanks!

You do your clinicals in alberta and incur the costs such as housing food transportation. Consolidation at the end can be in your home province
