Experiences at Conestoga College for Practical Nursing?

  1. Hi there,

    I will be starting the RPN program at Conestoga College in January 2018. I am just wondering what other people's experiences were with the program at Conestoga. Did you find that it prepared you for the workplace? How were placements- were most within KW or were they outside? Was the faculty supportive in your learning? If you have any other advice that would be helpful please feel free. Thank you in advance for your help!

    I'm starting in Jan as well. I saw on the schools website that there are two placement locations; one in KW and another in Guelph, both seemed like they were nursing homes. Following your post as I'm curious about placements too.
