Hi everyone!

I'm currently studying in the RPN program but am looking to apply for the RN bridge at Centennial-Ryerson.

To my understanding, you need at least a cumulative 3.0 and cannot repeat/fail any courses as an RPN student.

I was wondering what everyone's average/their intake average was from their RPN diplomas and if they received any C's as well.

Some of us are anxious because we received 2 C's in the past semester but A's in all the other courses, meaning our cumulative GPA is past 3.0, but we still have C's in our transcript.

What do you think?

Thanks!

Hello, I am currently in the Centennial - Ryerson program I got in with a 3.6 average. A few of my friends got some C's in the RPN program but still got into the program one of my friends had a 3.0 exactly and got in. As long as you have a 3.0 cumulative gpa and no failures\repeats I believe you'll be fine.

Wow, congrats!

Thanks so much for the info!

Do you also happen to know by any chance the average gpa for people who got into Ryerson as well after the Centennial bridge? I wish that once people got accepted into Centennial, it would be an automatic acceptance to Ryerson like other bridging programs😓

Thanks again for your help!

No problem !

Im still in the bridging portion & don't know exact averages but our professors and past bridging students have told us as long as you get the 3.0 gpa without failing/repeating  any courses in the centennial bridging portion you are pretty much guaranteed into the Ryerson portion . You aren't competing for a spot with your other class mates you just need to meet those requirements and you're in ! 🙂  I believe they do this to weed out those who may not be successful in the University portion. BSCN requires a much more in depth look at topics learned in the PN program.

From what I hear though a bit more tricky than other bridging programs . A majority of those admitted into the Centennial bridging program successfully make it to the Ryerson portion. If you can meet the program requirements you have the tools needed to succeed !

Sorry to hijack the op but when should we look to apply for the bridging program? Can we still apply if we’re still doing the RPN program?

for that, i'd contact the school(s) you're applying to! each year the schools do something slightly different in terms of the timeline of admissions. some may wait for you and give you a conditional offer, while some are strict and need you to have completed your studies and already be certified under the cno!

Speak to admissions for any clarifications!

I would apply as soon as you are in your last semester of RPN, as soon as the program come available on Ontario Colleges. Then contact the school admissions as soon as you graduate and send in your final marks.

If you’re looking to start in Fall 2020 and you’re in your final semester right now, you can apply now. If you start your final semester in Jan, then apply in January.
