Quote from Nurse? could you...
Hi I am in the works of the same program and I also wondered the same thing. Congratulations! May start up if all goes well and the college checks out...we may be study buddies! lol
As for the person's comment below about googling it...the question was if anyone had taken the course and if it was good and to have the honest opinion of the course/curriculum. Googling it does not answer that question...thats even if the info that is googled is even correct/valid. Despite the hiring freeze, if still in
effect, AHS is not the only place to be a nurse.
So hopefully someone who actually attended Columbia college in Calgary and took the program for nursing could please comment next time? This is crucial to know so money is not going down the drain.
Well, that's me told. AHS hires the vast majority of nurses within the province, be it acute care, public health, Corrections. There are faith based organizations and LTC, doctors clinics but they do not hire in the same numbers.
If truth be told, managers prefer to hire from Norquest and Bow Valley (the traditional training facilities) or programmes affiliated with them. A known standard with a good reputation.
CDI, Steinberg had terrible reputations.
But hey, go ahead and take massive loans.
Call them and ask them what their CPRNE pass rate is. Contact CLPNA for the information.
Critical thinking and using your research skills are all vital in a nursing career.
