  1. Does it matter which school you go to in Ontario?

    Nah, I don't think it matters much. Every potential employer is going to have their own set of biases and prejudices, so just focus on doing what's best for you. My best friend's mum is a nurse, and apparently at her hospital they try to avoid hiring...
  2. I know, but if there's any possible way to make it happen, I have to give it a shot.
  3. Good to know, thank you :)
  4. Hi friends. I am currently a pre nursing student, just working on some pre requisites before I apply. Currently I'm trying to get into Mo/Mac nursing, simply because it's closest to me, but if need be I am willing to go to other schools. My question ...
  5. I just printed my completed nursing application...

    Aha I think about that too, whether or not I did my applications properly. It's so irrational, I know, but I always think "what if they didn't get my transcript? What if I forgot to fill something in? What if I'm missing a requirement I didn't know a...
  6. I just printed my completed nursing application...

    I completely understand where you're coming from. I'm going through something similar. I just applied to a one year pre nursing program, because I don't have the science credits from high school to go directly into nursing school. Once I take this co...
  7. I can certainly understand the principle of it, and I do agree that it's a little unfair. But I definitely understand why some professors feel the need to do this. I think it's something you just have to deal with when you have that particular profes...
  8. Can I get into a RPN program with a low 80 average?

    Yay! I'm so happy for you :) Go out there and kill it
  9. Don't get me wrong, I know my mom loves me a lot and she just wants the best for me, and honestly I could do a LOT worse for parents. But she is very stubborn and stuck in her ways, and if she doesn't get her way, she's very vocal about it. Next time...
  10. Haha I guess there's always something to learn from every experience, right?
  11. That's exactly it, my mom and I want different things. I know at the end of the day she just wants what's best for me and for me to be happy, but I wish she would let me figure it out for myself, you know? She always wanted me to be a writer or an ar...
  12. I know, it's really very surprising in this day and age. I suppose it stems from the old view that nursing is a "woman's" job, back in a time where women weren't respected. We're getting better though. I'm glad you're getting to live your dream thoug...
  13. I get the same thing from her as well, about the introversion. But in my opinion, I think good nurses come in all types. Not every patient wants to be chatty when they're in a lot of pain or they're embarrassed, you know? I'm sure I'll find my niche ...
  14. Yeah, I think that sort old fashioned way of looking at nurses is a big part of the problem. I get the impression that my mother thinks that all nurses do are bathe patients and take orders from doctors, which I understand is a big part of the career...
  15. Too old for BSN?

    Maybe my opinion isn't worth much in this respect because I'm not a nurse yet, but I don't think you're too old at all! I'll be starting nursing school at age 20, graduating with my BSN at 24, best case scenario. Maybe 25 if I end up having to bridge...
