    Nipissing SPP 2020 Applicants!

    Hey! I think it should be going out next week, I don't know the exact date. Most schools have their reading week now so Nipissing might be on their reading week too. Check out the thread I have linked below! It is essentially the same thing except more users are active on it so you will be able to connect with more people! Good luck to you too!!

    Waiting can be the toughest stage of this process because this is the stage where all the overthinking and self-doubt happens. Getting into this program means a lot so it is hard not to be anxious about it. I am in a very similar headspace and I know it helps to talk things through so if you ever want to talk about it, feel free to private message me!

    Ontario Second Entry Nursing Fall 2020

    Trent admits a lot of people. I would say more than most schools so you have a good chance! I'm also writing mine on the 23rd! Pretty nervous because I don't know what to expect but UWashignton's Bioethics page online has some great resources. Good luck! You got this!!

    Haven't heard back from Trent yet. I think they wait for your Casper test. I have a few friends in the program so I can share what I know about it. Classes are fairly large but seminars and simulations are in smaller groups. 1st placement is in long term care (psw work), then community, then another placement is either maternity or mental health (you choose; locations can be far, I know a lot of people who went to Oshawa, Lindsay and Coburg for placements). 3rd year level placements are acute and chronic. They are typically in PRHC (Peterborough's hospital). Final placement is 1-on-1 and most people go to their hometowns for this one. The program is structured like a normal undergrad program. It is a really stressful program and a lot of work but people at Trent are know to be very kind and helpful so it won't be hard to find a good study group. Trent is the most beautiful campus and has access to a lot of support services.

    You are awesome for doing this!!! How do you feel about the structure of this program compared to your a traditional program like most undergraduate programs? Also if you don't mind me asking what was the application process like for you? What kind of things do you think is important to include in your personal statement? I am pretty stressed out about possibly not being competitive enough due to my poor grades third year and lack of medical experience so I am really trying to make the most of my personal statement! Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

    Condensing it is always difficult especially when you have so many great thing to say. I just saw your post in another thread and your educational background is pretty impressive so I am not surprised that you are at 4 pages!! From what I know research experience typically shows that you are capable of working independently which is something the SPP committee is keen on. To be honest, I am super nervous about my application. My background is in psychology and I don't have much healthcare experience because I always thought I would go into teaching. Also, my third year was a disaster (I talking an average of 62%) and I am currently in 4th year doing fairly well. My average in my top 10 full credits is 89.95% and the cumulative average is 84.06% (how do you convert that into a GPA ? lol). I heard from some people that the committee actually may look at top 10 full credits from the last two years of university so in that case my average would between 60-70%. Basically I am stressed out about not being competitive at all. I am writing my CASPer on the 23rd. I am hoping that isn't too late! I am really nervous about that too. How did you prepare for it? Keep me posted on how you personal statement is going, I always enjoy hearing from other applicants!

    I can relate! I have been working on my personal statement for over three weeks but haven't made much progress. Are you including your work/volunteering experiences in your personal statement? I am including it but our prompt asked us to describe "educational background and experiences". The overly anxious side in me is wondering if they are asking for educational experiences and not general experiences.

    Hey everyone! Is anyone applying to Nipissing's SPP program for Fall 2020? I made a new post specifically for this program because there are so many components involved in the application so it would be nice to have a community of people to discuss the process with. Feel free to follow it. Here is the link:
