Hey there! I've been an RPN for just over a year now and I would love to bridge to do my RN. I applied to UOIT and just found out today that I've been waitlisted for sept. 2020 (my average is an 84 😞 ). I don't work with a place affiliated with Nipissing and I live to far to drive to any other school that offers bridging programs... I just don't know what to do...

Do I take courses to upgrade? .. I may take a course and bring my average up only 1% and perhaps that still won't get me an acceptance (unless I get 90-100% in which case I could raise It up 2%)

Do I make the 2 hour drive to another school?

Do I find another job with a place affiliated with nipissing? 

any help or suggestions or even just something to help me think/decide what to do would be helpful! thanks.

Oh gosh, I see Barrie was your closest choice. Mohawk, Conestoga, Centennial/Ryerson are really far commutes. 

First of all, I would speak to an Ontario Tech admission advisor about upgrading as they’re easily accessible now as they’re working from home.

I think just do really well in one course and it should bump you high enough. Take coronary care 1, you can use it as an elective once you're in the program. Personally, I wouldn't want to drive 2 hrs one way for school.

You could just wait an reapply. Being put on a wait list isn’t necessarily because of your average.
