    climate change and nursing

    Hello students and nurses! I am collaborating on a paper for publication on the role of nursing in climate change and sustainability. I am seeking the student perspective on how we think about climate change, our responsibility as nurses/future nurses, nursing curriculum related to climate change, do you think climate change is affecting our patients, and any other thoughts that you may have on the topic. This post is very informal, Let's hear your thoughts!

    You can always upgrade your courses! But check with Calgary or any other university you plan to potentially go to, and make sure that the courses you want to take through Athabaska transfer to the nursing school. If they do, as long as you get a higher grade than you had in the class before, they will take the highest to give you the highest gpa.

    But I had called nursing admissions that same day in the morning and they told me to not call again and that I wouldn't hear until the end of September at the very earliest, and then I was accepted that afternoon. So I don't think general admissions (who actually calculates GPAs and reviews your file) and nursing admissions are on the same page. I got a million different answers from both and a new answer each time I talked to someone new.

    My gpa was 3.76 and it was complete way before the application even opened in July because I originally applied for transfer route but I only qualify for degree holder, as I have a degree, so they switched my application to degree holder jan. (does this make sense?)

    was everyone talking to General Admissions? or Nursing Admissions Coordinators?

    ohhh okay! it sounds like they are ready to admit people above 3.7 ?? I am at 3.76 and haven't heard anything

    So, 3.7 is the final cutoff for degree holder? and 3.3-3.7 will be on the waitlist? or is 3.7 the initial cutoff and they will lower it as they go? I am confused, I talked to them a few days ago and they said they haven't evaluated any applications and won't until late September.

    do you know if thats the initial cutoff and they will begin to lower it after? or is that what they are anticipating the final cutoff to be? and is that for transfer or degree holder?

    Hey! I applied for degree holder route. My application was in before it opened online... (I originally applied for the transfer route sept 2019 but I have a degree so my application was switched to this cycle and degree holder route instead). Going in with a 3.76 and patiently waiting!!

    I have a degree in Kinesiology and did anatomy and physiology courses at UVIC, UFV and I upgraded anatomy at Dalhousie this past year. What do you mean by resources?
  14. Hello Future Nurses! I wanted to start a new thread for the January 2020 Degree Holder Route! I am curious as to what is everyone applying with in terms of GPA, when you applied, and post when you hear from admissions! I am a prospective student, applying with a GPA of 3.76 and my application was in before the application opened. (I originally applied for the transfer route sept 2019 but I have a degree so my application was switched to this cycle and degree holder route instead). I have another offer at Memorial University of Newfoundland for September and am hoping to hear from UofC admissions before I have to move to Newfoundland (tight, I know)! Good luck everyone and hopefully see you all in January!
