Sheridan practical nursing 2020 Summer/fall

Posted

Hey everyone!

I currently got into Sheridan (PN program) for the Spring/Summer entry as well as the fall entry. I'm struggling to make a choice as I am finishing up pre-health at George Brown and would be going straight into school again if I accept the Spring/Summer entry. I would also lose out on any other acceptances (that's if I'm accepted anywhere else) I applied to George brown, mohawk and centennial. My issue is I only have 5 days to accept my Spring/Summer offer to Sheridan and I don’t know if I'm rushing it - I just really like the chance at finishing the program quicker.

Can anyone give me some insight on going through school throughout the Summer? As well if there are any major differences between starting earlier vs starting in the fall?

Also were you able to balance school and working part time?

Any input is appreciated!!

@victoriam14 Hi I also applied to practical nursing sheridan but for May2021, I was just wondering was was your high school average that got you into the program?

 

@dreyy Hey, I didn't use my high school marks to get in. I took Pre-Health at georgebrown last year and applied with those marks. My fall term GPA was 3.27 and Winter term GPA was 4.0.

Hey! What program did you end up taking??

@ree1810 I ended up starting Sheridan in the fall! I like the program, its a bit tough online, but I'm managing - we only go on campus once a week for lab. We haven't had clinical placement yet, next semester its not happening either due to COVID so, we're doing it in Spring/Summer term. They basically opened up the fast-tracking for us, so I could be done the program by next December which is exciting!  

@victoriam14 how is the program overall, are the online courses extremely hard or are they doable and I just got to stay on top of my game and study hard, nervous and excited to start

@dreyy the courses are definitely manageable. Math is a 90 to pass, if you do the work and keep up with it you'll do well, its basic and the formulas are straight forward, I hate math and I'm doing really well. I struggle the most with anatomy, it's really heavy, so you gotta do the readings and pay attention in lecture. Everything else is fairly doable if you put in the effort! Teachers are really great too, I think with the adjustment of online learning they have been generous with the work they give us and they all understand that online learning is a big change.

ooh that’s interesting! I met some of the teachers/program coordinators at the virtual open house a month ago and they were really nice! very excited to start 🙂

@ree1810 for lab we just wear a lab coat (included in our tuition), no dress code really, I suggest comfy clothes with a good shoe to maintain proper body mechanics for lifts/transfers.  Clinical we have scrubs with the Sheridan logo on them, you get them from the bookstore!

how many hours would u say u study for school a week? A lot of people say nursing school is hard, and I have never been to college before so im quite nervous about the workload.
