Hi! I graduated from UBC Nursing this past April. I wanted to provide some info on the program
Similarly to how UofT was described above, I also found UBC to be very based in theory, although they do a fairly good job of trying to balance out the clinical/practical component. I was very lucky in that I got wonderful clinical placements in Vancouver where I learned a lot (not all of my peers were so lucky, it's luck of the draw basically). UBC also has "thread" courses that focus on ethics, leadership, research and relational practice that you take throughout the program in addition to clinical-based courses and lectures (maternity, mental health, med-surg, etc). Aka they also want you to explore non-bedside nursing and really want their students to consider an MSN!
What helterskelter22 said above is also completely untrue for UBC....the class averages are HIGH, not low. Their are some keeners but for the most part I loved my classmates and everyone is really supportive of each other. Like all programs, the school has its pros and cons but I would overall recommend the program. Its 20 months!!! And I got a job out of it. You will too no matter what school you decide.
Best of luck in your decision
