After finishing the preparatory program, will I enter into the second year term 2 of the regular program? Or the second entry has a special curriculum? Thanks!

The second entry has their own curriculum for the first year. It is not until the following fall semester that you join up with the regular program for two semesters (fall and Winter), before separating again in the final Summer.

Thank you so much Chickpea7. I heard from a couple of ppl saying the program is very demanding and half of the students drop off from the program. Could you share some of your experiences?

It has been very demanding, but manageable. I'd say half is an exaggeration, but I think we started with around 90 students and were down to 60-something at the start of this semester. Some failed out, but some chose to leave for other pursuits. Humber has the highest pass rate on the NCLEX compared to the other bachelors programs (including u of t, york, ryerson, etc.) so I'd say it does a great job at preparing you in that regard. I think nursing programs in general are pretty rigorous, so time management will be important. Adding to that, going through the summers makes it so you don't get a big break like the 4 year programs. It can feel draining at times, but totally worth it.
