    Question: PN bridge to RN with a repeated course

    I don't think you are able to transfer to the bridging program form BScN as you will be required to have a PN diploma and CNO license. However, I heard some schools allow you to transfer to the PN program from the BScN.

    UOIT RPN-RN average? 2020

    When I applied, I don't remember them saying anything about repeated courses but I would email them to double check.

    I thought UOIT were okay with repeated courses as long as you have a competitive gpa.

    Ontario RPN-RN Bridge September 2020 Intake

    For the bridging program, it's roughly around there. For some people who are working, they prefer less clinical hours and for those who are not working the opposite. Just whichever works best for them. Ontario tech have clinicals in the summer time while Cent/Ryerson have theirs during the school terms.

    Def choose the place closest to home. Just fyi for Cent/Ryerson, I had friends who did that program and they said that as long as you maintain a certain grade, you'll get into Ryerson. Another thing about this program is that the consolidation placement is around 190 clinical hrs. Ontario tech requires 420 clinical hrs.

    If you're still in the states maybe take the anatomy course there, you don't have to necessarily take the course in Canada. You might need to fly in for the final exam which might be a bit expensive for a test. I went to school in Ontario and had international classmates.

    Best GTA/Ontario RPN Program?

    I went to Seneca King and thought it was pretty decent. You can also consider Durham college, there are some go buses that goes straight to campus.

    Sorry I made a a mistake, summer was 1.4k and it is not included in the 6000. 6000 is a little bit low if you are also taking some electives for both fall and winter.

    Also because the clinical courses are 2 credits, it's a good idea to take your electives as well to make it at least 3 credits a term where you can apply for full time osap if you need more funding from osap.

    @kim1l If you click on "Account summary by term" it will show the amount for each term. I forget if the summer term summary comes out right away or later on the year. I think it comes out later on the year and it comes out to roughly 2k-3k. You can pay by term, you do not have to pay for fall and winter at the same time. So the first summer you go once a week for a 12 hr shift and the second summer you go 2x 8 hrs shifts a week.

    I didn't go to Cent for PN lol I went to Seneca. It was like 3.6 or something. UOIT doesn't have a part time option but you can talk to the guidance councilor to see if you can customize your semesters.

    RPN to RN bridging (UOIT)

    You are very welcome. When I was choosing the bridging program, my requirement was that it was somewhere in the GTA so that I can use public transportation. This limited me to UOIT, Cent/Ryerson and Georgebrown/Trent. I also checked their NCLEX pass rates on the CNO website and UOIT was slightly above Cent/Ryerson. At that time, I could not find information if I was guaranteed a spot in Ryerson if I achieve a 3.0 GPA in Cent so UOIT appeared more appealing. I was also thinking of doing part time while in school so having clinical in the summer time will allow that flexibility. Many of my classmates worked while doing full time school at UOIT because the school try to schedule all your classes to 1-3 days Monday - Friday. I have friends who were at Cent/Ryerson and they had to go to school everyday Monday - Friday. I am not sure about other schools though. However, UOIT is more spread out in my opinion. I did mine full time but couldn't find a job at that time and I stopped looking after a while. It is a one time consolidation on your last semester. However, you will have a 184 hrs pre-consolidation which is right before the consolidation term. For example, Sept-Dec preconsolidation and Jan-Apr Consolidation. I know Ryerson also have preconsolidation, not too sure about other schools.

    The length of the program is the same as other programs which is like 3 years. The only difference is that other programs will probably have the summer off while you have clinical. You can also take electives during the summer since you are already paying tuition for clinical. Yes, completing the program will allow you to write the NCLEX. Yes as long as you successfully complete all the requirements of the program, you will get the bscn degree. I know that for cent/ryerson, you get a diploma for completing cent then get the degree if you complete Ryerson. For UOIT, you just get the degree at the end. I think the first term is the bridging portion of the program and then you will be enrolled into the bscn program starting the second semester.

    You're welcome, hope you get in! So they are pretty good and try to squeeze all the courses in 1-3 days. The days may feel longer but you won't need to go on campus for like half the week.

    I recently graduated from there. So the main thing about this program at this school is that they have their clinical in the summer time. This does allow more flexibility for people who work and attend school. However, you do need to pay another semester of tuition. Some core courses are different from other schools and for consolidation you have to do 420 clinical hours. Some programs such as cent/ryerson requires roughly 190 clinical hours for consolidation.
