    I did stats at athabasca.. I hated every minute of it but if you stay focused you will make it through. The tutor i had was great about answering questions . The minute I was done i dumped all that info out of my brain lol

    im currently a student at algonquin college in my first year. I won't be finding until next August since my program is running from jan-aug. I am considering of doing the program of AU and was wondering if u could share your experience more to me. I was reading this thread and it has made me realize that I may not finish as fast as I thought I would be because of no clinical placements available? Was this true in your situation? And does that mean that after I finish the program I must pay to get licensed in Alberta, and then after if I want to work in Ontario, get anotherlicensed for Ontario?

    Thank you

    Hey! I'm looking at starting cluster a in January. Any advice? Do you like it? I don't like math class and have an opportunity to take the stats class at my local college and transfer credit. What is your input on the program? Much appreciated thanks!

    Me too I'm interested in the program. Has anyone gotten any transfer credit from courses taken in the practical nursing program eg English & Psychology?

    Also how long did the evaluation take

    All PN courses that you took go to your 30 credits that they count toward the 120 for a bachelors for the advance standing.

    Any university courses you may take extra would count as electives though
