Hi all, i’ve been accepted to both ubc and uoft, both very comparable schools in terms of academic standing in canada, research opportunities etc. I’ve been living in vancouver since september and off/on for the past few years but originally raised in toronto. I’m wondering if anyone else is in a similar predicament and would like to discuss 😄 I have a list of pros/cons but would like to go over with as many people as possible to make an extremely informative decision lol. I thought i was 70/30 toronto but now i’m back to 50/50 after thinking about how my cons for ubc shouldn’t be make it or break it issues (clinicals might be placed super far, variety of food is not the same as toronto lmao etc). Hope someone has more insights!

Hello! In my opinion, I would also consider ease of transition from school to work. For me, I think it would be easier to adapt as a new grad if my clinical preceptorships were in the same authority as where I planned on working post-gradation. I think that becoming established as a registered nurse is going to be hard enough, and I wouldn't want any other added stressors early in my career that may be involved with switching between provinces. If you are planning on working and staying in Vancouver for the next few years, then perhaps attending UBC would be a good choice. However, if you are planning on staying in Toronto for the next few years, then perhaps UofT would be better. I have also heard that students can often get hired out of their final preceptorships, so this might be something to consider as well.

Hello! Good luck with your application! After deciding that I wanted to pursue my BSN at UBC, I made an active effort to pursue as many growth experiences as possible prior to application time. For example, I seeked volunteer positions that allowed me to have close contact with patients, and employment that challenged me interpersonally (in a medical environment). Further, I kept notes on events that occurred in my daily life that reinforced my decision for choosing nursing as a career. Doing these things will help you when the time comes for you to write your supplemental, and with the CASPer. Be open to as many new experiences as possible, and push yourself to grow! It will help you with your application, prepare you for your upcoming career as a nurse, and make you a better person 🙂

Hi everyone!

I got my uniforms from Uniform Central already, so I just wanted to let you know it's 20% of your entire purchase from May 9-12th for nurse's week! 🙂 

Saved about $60!!

Ooh thanks for telling us!!! Right now my finances are still tight and I won’t be receiving financial aid until Sept, so this is great news!

For anyone still looking for good CPR HCP (BLS) rates, go to Intensive Care First Aid! I’ve heard good things about it and paid ~$64 (it’s one of the cheapest). You can also add N95 Mask Fitting for only $29.99. I signed up for May 17 session. 

DON’T go to Vancouver First Aid. Apparently it’s an administrative nightmare.

Yes, I got a solution from Ruxandra on that:

 1. Submit a blank 2019 BSN Offer Agreement quiz with no attachment. 

2. Retake the quiz. 

It worked perfectly, I was able to download the document on the 2nd attempt after just submitting without an attachment (the system allows for multiple submissions so its no problem).

Congratulations to everyone accepted. I received my email and I am number 1 on the waitlist. I am very pleased with my results as I was sure I would not be accepted compared to all the impressive applications everyone else seemed to have. I got a 4 for admission average, 3 for supplemental, and 1 for CASPer. 

 

I applied with a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology and a certificate from SFU. My grades were not the best, I think about 3.3 GPA. I have volunteer experience from a nursing home helping those with Alzheimer's and dementia. I have various work experience: Tim Hortons, ECE assistant, warehouse prodction, accounting assistant, etc. I am not sure how they choose who is accepted or not, but it seems they really care about the CASPer results. 

 

I also applied to BCIT and got into the top 15 waitlist. But UBC is my first choice. Very glad I will have the opportunity to go to UBC nursing!

Hello! I know it hasn't been too long since the news was given, but I was wondering if you heard anything back yet regarding your status?
