Hi everyone, I am a student at UNB/Humber second entry program, currently in my second semester. If anyone has any questions regarding the program at Humber I am more than happy to answer them! :) n01192003@humbermail.ca

Hi everyone. I recently got accepted to U of T and western and was hoping if any of you can provide some feedback on U of T's program. I've heard its more theory based so would that make it harder to keep up a good gpa? I want to do masters in nursing later on so I want to keep up a good gpa for it. Any feedback is appreciated.

Does anyone have any insight into McMaster vs. Western accelerated programs?

Hey everyone,

So I called Western today and they said that most of the remaining acceptances will be given at the very end of May. The admissions person that I spoke to said that when they say end of May they mean the very end like May 31st and sometimes even into June ! So she said don't worry too much if you haven't heard anything yet!

Hey guys,

Not sure if this is a stupid question... but I'm looking at my offer from York on OUAC and the program title says "Nursing (BScN, Second-Degree Entry, RN not required)"

What does it mean by "RN not required"?

For the record: got into York nursing today with a 7.1 average in last 30 credits and a 7.3 average cumulative. Was very relieved, as I was worried my marks were too borderline to cut it.

Also, was an internal applicant.

For anyone that got accepted to Trent, have you received your admission's package in the mail yet? I live in Burlington, which is a fair ways away from Peterborough, but I got accepted at the end of April and I still haven't gotten the package in the mail.

I've received my package and I live in downtown Toronto!

i am not a UofT student but I am taking their physiology online course. And if they teach all their courses like that then I don't want to go to UofT.

Before I started this course my friend told me that most UofT student say that it's better to do undergrads somewhere else, get good grades and then get a masters from UofT. I didn't listen and now I deeply regret that. I am comparing UofT online course to other online undergraduate courses I am taking (Queens and New Brunswick) and they are way better organized and taught and it is easier to get a good grade. And by easier I don't mean that I am lazy and want easy grades, I mean at other courses I know if I did all the homework and study properly - I'll get a good grade.

Most likely my grade in physiology will be so poor that I'll have to take another course (not Uoft this time!) and apply next year. But at least it changed my perspective, before that I wanted UofT only because it is #3 nursing school in the world, very top level and if I will not get into UofT it's the end of the world etc

Now I look more realistically at things and will be more than happy to get into York or Western, and after that I will do my masters in UofT. If I will not get anywhere this year then next year Queens will be my first choice because I really liked the way their online school is organized, attitude to students and quality of courses.

Hi! I am almost finished the first year of U of T's program right now. I did my first degree here at U of T and I would definitely disagree with the generalized statements that U of T has a negative atmosphere, I've been here for a while and have had an outstanding time. The program's faculty is the most supportive faculty I could ever imagine and they really want you to do well and develop into a good nurse. Also, my experience has been that I've practically made 100 new close friends within the span of 8 months, everyone is so kind to each other. The program really is what you make of it, if you want to do well and work hard then your marks will more likely reflect that.

While there may be a fair bit of theory in the program I wouldn't expect there to be any less amount of theory in a nursing program. If you've been accepted into this program it's probably a good guess to say that you have good critical thinking skills and could apply theory to your practice which if you ask any nursing faculty, is the mark of a good nurse. I can't speak to the relative difficulty between programs but I can say that in general our class averages are like B to B+

Hope that was helpful! Congrats on being accepted and good luck with your decision!

Thank you for your feedback! That was really helpful, its good to know that you like the program :) I had one more question. How is the progression of the program. It's not completely clear on their website how each term works.

I would totally agree about classmates as well, even though my course is online people are incredibly supportive, as well as our TA. But our professors never check discussion board, so we don't have any communication with them at all. Probably disadvantage of online study.
