First off, to the writer who said "Is Yorkgate in the Jane and Finch area? You have never heard of any crime in that area?", Yes, the Yorkgate Campus is in the Jane and Finch area. Jane and Finch, just so you know is actually a decent place to live in. I have lived here all my life. The media always focuses on Jane and Finch so much that everyone gets a notion that this area is dangerous. THERE ARE CRIMES EVERYWHERE. There's no safe place in the city.
On a lighter note, I just finished the Seneca College program and graduated this October 2016, wrote my nursing registration exam the same month and passed it this November.
I went to the Part Time Practical Nursing route- which was done at Newnham Campus at Finch and Don Mills. This was ideal for me because I was able to go to work in the morning and take the nursing courses in the evening. I took about 4-5 courses every semester and it took me 2 years to finish everything.
What I like about Seneca was every course were straight forward and related to the program. (Not unlike other colleges). First semester would be a little overwhelming because you will all juggle your time with the introductory courses: Clinical, Anatomy, Psychology, etc. Make sure to keep all your notes because at the very end, on your final semester, you will have to do a pre-nursing registration exam everything you've learned in the program is testable.
