    Absolutely bridge and transition into the RN role! Every practice environment has its challenges no matter where you go. Focus on strategies towards enhancing your self-care! As I always tell my students, "when you graduate, that's when the learning begins!"

    This is really really really ******* me up on the inside, because im having A lot of family issues at the moment, and right now I feel like im stuck, I just missed 2 days of clinical (THE ENTIRE WEEK!) and its only week 4, I feel like im screwed as of now. I am feeling horrible.
    You need to speak to your program coordinator ASAP if you haven't already done so. Your previous unsuccessful attempt at clinical is part of your permanent record so that cannot be changed. If you fail this same semester 3 clinical you will have to restart practical nursing from scratch and that decision to restart will have to be granted from your program coordinator.

    Not to sound harsh, but why is this a concern for you?

    Diversity in the workplace is important and everyone brings their own strengths to the table (especially when we are such a multi-cultural population). Respecting your co-workers goes a long way to being a team player.

    Furthermore, it is great we live in a country that a has the freedom for people to speak whichever language they feel most comfortable with.

    Just my two cents
    In a working environment we have to promote a professional environment. Speaking in languages/dialects that are not understood by others can be interpreted as bullying and harassment.

    Hello,

    Did you end up attending Centennial College for the RPN hybrid program? I work in public health as well working Monday to Friday. I have applied and wondering if this program will work with my schedule. Did you have to attend one a week in the evening and how many placements did you have to do. Any feedback from you would be appreciated thanks Julie
    The flex option would be challenging for you if your work fulltime because classes and clinical placements are throughout the week. Hybrid may be a option for you and depending on where it is offered it may fit into your schedule because I recall some hybrid classes were offered on weekends. The down side of hybrid is the cost. You are paying for 6 semesters where as in flex your paying for 3 semesters and in fulltime the costs is for 2 semesters. Another downside for hybrid is if there is not enough enrollment it may delay your progress.

    From what I understand an international student can pursue a nursing program but the issue comes when registering to write the licensing exam and getting a temporary licence. I don't remember but I remember classmates who were visiting from other countries I think may have had to apply for landed immigrant status or something. Another issue is the police clearance check that is required for clinical practicums.
