    UBC September 2014 Applicants

    Write about why you want to be a nurse. What inspired out to go into this field. I made mine very personal when I applied last year and it helped a lot. Many times a person chooses to go into nursing because of a personal connection with the healthcare system, whether it be an ill relative or something they witnessed so share that with the faculty! They want people who are not only passionate, but also have a little experience/maturity (whether it be professional, volunteer, personal).

    UBC September 2014 Applicants

    Hi Everyone! Glad to hear everyone is working hard on their applications! I am currently in the program here at UBC and I thought I would just try to clear some of the confusion about transcripts. When I applied last year, the transcripts had to be official, aka mailed from your previous university with the official stamp. It just had to have a date stamp prior to Jan 31 to be accepted since everyone knows how unreliable mail can be lol! Now, when I first contacted UBC admissions they gave me totally wrong information. Contact UBC School of Nursing directly to make sure you can just upload it. Better to know now. :) Best of Luck!!!
  3. Hi Kiawa, I am currently a student in the UBC nursing program. It is incredibly competitive, but if you get to the interview you have a very good chance of being accepted into the program. With the application connect the volunteer experience you have with the qualities important in nursing. The UBC nursing program strives to have a class with students from all sorts of backgrounds (not just healthcare) so show off the experience you have and explain why it will help you to be a great nurse. Best of luck!! :)

    UBC Nursing - September 2013

    My GPA was 3.75 and I have had experience volunteering in the hospital alongside nurses, and I am currently volunteering in a long-term care facility, working with patients who have dementia and alzheimer's. In total, I have around 5 years of volunteer experience in health care, as well as being involved with other clubs and activities. I am in my third year at UBC and I am studying biology. I still haven't received an invite

    Hey Guys, Don't panic, they take a really long time to send out invites because each email is personalized (to let you know your score, etc). Last year applicants were still receiving invites into the second week of April so it will be all this week, next week and possibly a couple the week following that. The waiting game just sucks

    UBC Nursing - September 2013

    Hey Guys:) I am hoping to get into the UBC nursing program this year as well! Yes grades are important, but they really look at the supplemental. Last year the average was 79% but there were a lot of people who had lower GPAs that got interviews because they had really strong supplemental. One of my friends who had an amazing GPA didn't even get an interview because his supplemental was so weak, while my other friend had a very strong supplemental and a GPA around 75%.
