    Oh that's super cool -- what an admirable profession! Yeah, it's honestly up to you. It sounds like a hard career decision/switch between two interests! I hope you can figure it out soon. I'd love to work in pediatrics or mental health as well!

    You're able to defer! @Kathleen L I think a few students who deferred their admission last year are attending Nursing this year I'm 10% wondering if I should defer mine as well, even though I completed the BLS, Mask Fit, signing forms etc requirements already. I want to focus on my mental health first due to recent events (deadline to submit deferral application is Aug 15), yet at the same time I refuse to wait a year before attending (I'm super excited) and I feel like I CAN get through the program with friends and good supports. Hopefully everything cools down for me in August before orientation lol

    Thanks for letting us know supriya! I’m glad a couple/half of the Term 1 textbooks we need are already owned by my sister lol

    @sss29 If you’re on student loans, you have the option to apply for a 17-week Term 1 loan (that’s Sept-Dec) and then a 17-week Term 2 loan (you apply in Oct/Nov for Term 2 Jan-April student loans). I’m a current UBC student and was fine paying each term at a time. Even if you’re not on loans, you should be ok! I would pay Term 1 tuition with my Term 1 loan, then Term 2 tuition with my Term 2 loan, and so on (you’ll see “September Installment” and “January Installment” are separate tuition amounts in your financial summary). Of course, call UBC if you’re not sure! For example, the dates on the left indicate when fees are due. Once Student Aid BC confirms your loans, the tuition payment deadlines get pushed back to the next month I’m saying all this just in case you/other people are applying for loans!!

    Ahah, yeah, I think students who applied to UBC BSN as a Program Change only pay $100 for the deposit /unless/ you have some $100 tuition credit left over which is applied to it. I only paid $100 as well

    Ohh okay that’s good to know, thank you I emailed her to make sure! And I did forget that A. they don’t count after Dec 2018, and B. any current grades should be within 10% of our admissions average, which is probably why I got worried! Sorry for the confusion aha

    Thank you so much It’s great to get empowerment from UBC Nursing grads!!! I think I’m overreacting for sure I talked to a few more upper years and they said we’ll still have time for self-care/taking breaks! I’m not too worried now!

    Oh that’s strange — I’ve mostly heard the opposite about BCIT’s Nursing Program! I heard it’s very intense!! @jennifersgj I’m able to answer part of your 2nd question: in first year of my Food, Nutrition and Health degree, we took the same core courses as Science students. I remember being stressed BUT it was doable! You just get used to it. When I progressed through to upper year in FNH it got easier since you finally grasp how to study for different subjects, what strategy works and what doesn’t, what content areas you should prioritize etc. BALANCE is key. I assume that progressing through UBC Nursing is the same!! And I’ve heard that it gets easier after Term 1 Nursing, considering Term 1 exposes us to terminology and ways of thinking that we’ve never really experienced in depth before! We’ll get used to it Be positive!!

    Thank you so much for answering our questions!!! I’m also aware that you try to achieve what you CAN handle, and because Nursing is hard — all Nursing schools are afaik — passing/getting slightly below average, especially if class averages are high, is enough for me Although I would really like to get good grades as well (only if my brain can handle it, of course). I’m 4th year and was going to graduate with my FNH degree in 2020, yet I managed to get in to Nursing this September, haha! Do you think I’ll be okay/can handle the program without having a Bachelor’s? I have good study habits as well, but obviously, sometimes I’m studying very efficiently, and sometimes I procrastinate if I absolutely have to (ie back-to-back exams, multiple assignments due on the same day, multiple quizzes, prioritizing things and fixing scheduling conflicts, getting burnt out by the last weeks of term, you get the picture). I’m intimidated, tbh. Every person admitted is very smart and I’m slightly scared that I won’t measure up!

    That's a big factor for me too! Working in Vancouver proper for the rest of my life is important. I've heard that BCIT is WAY more rigorous than other nursing programs, including UBC, but I'm just glad UBC put in more clinical hours! I plan to get an MN-NP as well!!

    I attended Corpus Christi and SFU from 2014-2015 before attending UBC, and Ruxandra told me that since I'm still a current UBC student (I'm just taking an English course at Langara for fun this summer, which doesn't count for admissions/doesn't transfer to UBC anyway lol), I didn't have to send in my transcripts from Corpus Christi and SFU since the credits were already processed as UBC transfer credit.
