BCIT, Langara, UFV Nursing 2022/2023

Hey guys! Starting a discussion post for students applying for BCIT Sept 2022, Langara Jan 2023 and UFV Jan 2023 intake! 

Wondering if any of you guys will be applying and if you’re open to sharing, what GPA/grades you’ll be applying with and if it’ll be your first time applying?

I’m worried about BCIT since they look at cGPA and my first year in post-secondary will rough for me but my marks has significantly improved. 

My required pre-requisite courses GPA is ~3.56-3.67 for BCIT depending on which elective I can use. I’ve retaken some courses and also finished my LPN. I’m currently working as an LPN since Oct 2021 and have been working as an immunizer since April 2021. 

Really hoping to get in for BCIT since I’ll have to retake my A&P after this year ? 

GPA for Langara: 3.53

GPA for UFV (LPN Access): 3.56

Share you experience/tips!

Hi!

I applied to Langara Sept 2022 and will be applying to BCIT Sept 2022 admission and this will be my first time applying to both nursing programs.

I’m currently finishing my BSc. undergrad at UBC and will have completed over 130 credits by this upcoming April. My cGPA isn’t that good due to my second year being rough and therefore it’s sitting at a 3.1/4.33 not including the last 4 courses that I’m currently enrolled in. I’ve worked in the service industry for over 3+ years as a server, host and have held an admin role too. Additional experience includes volunteering in the acquarium and senior home as well as delivering nutrition workshops to grade level children. I’ve also been a part of a campus club for over 2 years now with roles in the events department as well as the community department which executes philanthropic events both on and off campus. I don’t have much experience in healthcare therefore I’m quite worried that this will set me back from other strong applicants. I also haven’t taken the CASPer assessment and will probably do that in March since I’m definitely not ready for the upcoming Feb 1st slot.

GPA for Langara: 3.6

^(92%,92%,76%,86%,68%) not sure if I calculated this right.

Pre-requisite Grades for BCIT:

  • Pre-Calc 12: 90%
  • Chem 11: 87%
  • ENGL requirement: 76+ (B+)
  • Human Anatomy + Physiology requirement: 92% (A+) for 6 credit course
  • PSYC requirement: 81% (A-)
  • Gen ED courses: 80% (A-) , 86% (A), I have taken many other courses but they are kind of within the nursing field so I’m not sure if they can be used or not!

I would love to chat more about this and hear other experiences as well!

Hey , I applied for the same schools as you last year. I did get in at Langara and UFV. 

To be not wait list at Langara you need at least a 3.5 so you are good. I had a high GPA 

BCIT: are more focus on the number of credit and the overall GPA ! 
 

UFV : passing both interviews is the challenge !

Hey everyone!

Do you guys know how GPA for Langara is calculated? Does it use all of your post-secondary courses or just the pre-req courses?

Hey Christina, 

I applied for Langara last term and they just look at the pre-req course nothing else.

Hi!

I’m applying to the Langara January 2023 intake, and this is my first time applying! I’ve completed 3/5 of the prereqs at VCC so far and am doing the other two right now. My grades:

BIOL 1: A

STATS: A+

ENGL 1: A+

My first semester went way better than I thought and am hoping to get at least a B+ in BIOL 2 and ENGL 2 this semester! Fingers crossed!

You will definitely get in with those grades. I had an admission last term. Immediately the letter were send out. My grades were similar than your.
