Hey. I applied to the program last year and got accepted however I had to defer my admission to September 2019 intake due to a family emergency.

Let me know if you guys have any questions regarding the admission process. Good luck 🙂

Hi there, I was wondering if you could provide some insight into how you deferred and what the process was like? Were they pretty understanding of your situation? Had you accepted the admission first and then went through the process? Thanks so much for any info.

You're able to defer! @Kathleen L I think a few students who deferred their admission last year are attending Nursing this year 🙂 I'm 10% wondering if I should defer mine as well, even though I completed the BLS, Mask Fit, signing forms etc requirements already. I want to focus on my mental health first due to recent events (deadline to submit deferral application is Aug 15), yet at the same time I refuse to wait a year before attending (I'm super excited) and I feel like I CAN get through the program with friends and good supports. Hopefully everything cools down for me in August before orientation lol 

hey @mb96

Hey @mb96 ! Sounds like working on the self is important before going into this intense program but it's exciting to start something new at the same time.

I was initially rejected in May and was 57 on the waitlist; I thought for sure I would not get in so I changed my plans and got certified as a personal trainer and I am working full-time as a counsellor. I am not sure what to do considering I have limited time to give my notice and now the pressure is on! My first love is fitness however I am very interested in health care and would love to work in mental health and/or neonatal. 

Hi Kathleen L! I'm kind of in the same situation. I was number 38 on the waitlist, and I was sure I wasn't going to get in so I made alternate plans for Sept - December that I'm struggling to get out of now. I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone - I'm feeling pretty indecisive/ unsure as well! But I know I want to do nursing, and I'd rather start as soon as possible 🙂. I really hope it all works out for both of us ❤️

Hi @vancouverbsn2019. I am wondering if you think working one day a week during the program would be possible? Any insight would be great, thank you 😄

Aw yes! I am torn between fitness training and nursing. However, I was thinking if I was an RN I could potentially work in fitness nursing as well, and possibly do personal training on the side? Very interested in neonatal nursing, ICU and psychiatry as well. So much to think about. :0)

Also, how do we know if we have the weekday or weekend clinical schedule?

Just an FYI that Littman Classic III stethoscopes are a prime day deal with amazon and are 30% off right now (for today and tomorrow, I think?). 😀 Just noticed it while browsing for our materials.

Hey guys!

Does anyone plan on driving to UBC? If so do you guys know what you're doing for parking? like are you guys planning on getting a permit or is there a spot that there's usually free or cheaper parking?

Hey! I am going to be commuting from Langley 😓 I have looked up transit times/routes from my place and I've calculated it will take me 2 hours whether I take transit or drive during rush hour so I will probably try both and see which is the least annoying. Sitting in traffic during rush hour sucks but standing on a packed bus/train for hours is probably worse right?! As far as parking I found some reddit threads and it seems like thunderbird roof top is the cheapest at $10 per day. I'm not sure if getting a permit would be worth it since we are only at UBC 2.5 days per week. I'm also thinking about maybe driving in most of the way and then parking somewhere outside of UBC and catching a bus in to save the parking money, but I'm not sure of where a good spot is for that yet. Let me know if you find out any other info!

Oh my, that is such a long commute! I'm from out of town but I got a place in Richmond so it won't be as bad as 2 hours but I'm guessing it will be awful with rush hour. Since I'm not from Vancouver I have no clue what it's like! On the UBC parking website I looked up the parking rates for different places and  I saw that Thunderbird was 10$ a day but then I wonder how bad parking is there? Like is it completely packed all the time and very hard to get a spot since it seems to be the cheapest option?
