I know a few ppl who have gone through the Athabasca LPN to Rn program and work in ontario. Totally doesn't affect your working in ontario at all.
I finally made my hours and have applied but then i have to get my alberta license which is gonna take a while with all the paperwork.
The advantage i have for athabasca over ryerson is its distance education. I cannot take more time off to complete school. I HAVE to work and this option is best for me.
