Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that despite a failure of 1 subject (Nursing Research) at Ryerson University (Toronto, Canada) Parttime Post Diploma BScN program, I am now on my final semester which is clinical preceptorship, just 165hrs to complete.

I have made myself casual employee at the retirement home, not totally leaving it.

Also, I have been blessed to start working at the hospital as Part-time Registered Practical Nurse. By this way, I could work more hours and gain hospital experience before my BScN graduation.

I hope to finish this semester, ending first week of December 2018 & study for NCLEX-RN to take by January or February 2019. Graduation date is June 2019.

Congrats! Did I read that right that you only have to do 165 hours for preceptorship?!

Congrats! I would, and probably many others, would love it if you could share more of your experience at Ryerson. Good luck with NCLEX!

Yep. Since I was doing the RPN to BScN program, it was quite different for us.

Wow! I did the RPN to BScN program through Conestoga/McMaster and we needed 354 during our final semester (plus one class) and 288 during our second last semester (plus two classes). Crazy!

I did not know why my program didn't need a lot of hours. (It could be that most of us were working already? Maybe.). However, I did two clinical when I was in Centennial College. One in a acute care and one in community. (Too much paperwork). 

At Ryerson University, I just did two clinical on the final year (level 4). I was lucky to be put at a kidney transplant clinic then at a day surgery.

Maybe! We were all working as RPNs as well, so who knows what the rationale was!
