2017 UBC nursing


Hey guys,

I applied to UBC nursing this winter and I'm pretty confident in my chances of getting in. I already have a kin degree and I finished with an over 85 average in my last 30 credits. However, one of the professors from nursing I talked to really put me down, saying that they mainly look at older people (I'm in my early 20s) and they take LPNs, etc. over students. Is this true? Is my age going to impact my ability to get into this program? I have lots of work experience in the disabilities/mental health field but not a great amount of volunteering... is this enough? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
