  1. I am hearing all these horror stories about the RPN program (extremely difficult {I don't mind hard work, it always pays off in the end}, high drop out rate, etc). If anyone on here took the Registered Practical Nursing at any college in Toronto, Ontario. Please share some insight. I am very excited and can't wait to begin this Fall, but I am very nervous as well and don't want to take those feelings along with me into my First Year. Any, tips or advices? Pleas share your experiences. Many thanks.
  2. Hello all, I will be starting the the Practical Nursing program in few weeks and I am very excited. Though I have received many 'That a girl' from people, I've also received 'Oh my God, are you sure, why nursing?' I just wanted to know form anyone who is already employed as an rpn, what they would say is the most challenging part of the job and how does it differ in terms of job desription from an rn. I would also like to know what type of hours and pay does an rpn get coming straight out of school and how long would you say it takes to find employment after school? I believe that being a nurse is my way of giving back and I am very happy and proud of my decision to pursue this career. P.S...Can some also tell me a bit more about the exam with the Ontario Nurses Assoc. When will I have to take that exam (how long after completing the program). Many thanks MC
