Allison please contact********, she’s a nursing admission officer. She is AMAZING! I think she will fix your application. 

Thank! I’ve already been in contact with admissions and they disclosed that they had filled the nursing program before they had completed my course assessments. They said I would’ve been accepted with the 3.6 regardless, but they had filled the program. So now I have to hope for the waitlist.

I don’t think that is true...... I know someone that got in with a 3.7 already 😞 and apparently anyone with a 3.6 is waitlisted. And there are 18 seats left in our courses so spots aren’t filled up yet.

Also I’ve spoken to admissions, office of the registrar, and the nursing student advisor regarding my situation a few months ago, and none of them did anything to help me. You have to contact a specific nursing admissions officer to get things straightened out. 

Congratulations to those who are newly admitted! Best of luck as you enter into this exciting career. For those on the waitlist, don't lose hope! Keep pushing as nursing is certainly a marathon

Hey guys, has anyone had any luck getting off the waitlist yet? Or a timeline of when UofC might be looking to fill more seats?

Thanks!

Hi! 
I just called an advisor and they were saying that they’re hoping to notify people on the waitlist by December 15th... this is absolutely insane. Maybe you could call and see what they say? That is super last minute to notify students.

Unfortunately I am not entirely surprised. It would be really great if they were teaching theory online and then set practicum in chunks so that students wouldn't necessarily have to move to Calgary (for those of us not yet living there) to attend next semester on short notice, and would just need to organize a place to stay during practicum. Do you know more about the delivery by any chance? I think I read that they would be doing online classes, but still having weekly practicum.

They recently sent out an email to let us know that we can complete Term 3 100% online if we choose to. Those of us who have been accepted and live outside of Calgary have been asked to confirm whether or not we'll be living in Calgary for the upcoming term. Hope that helps.

That's a positive at least. Hopefully we hear back soon from the waitlist but December 15th will be the termination date of the waitlist, from my understanding, so I guess it's just a day by day. I wish they would let us know our position on the waitlist...

That does help, thank you for letting us know! 

It would be nice to have an idea on our positions for sure. Really trying to embrace the silver linings of the waiting process, I hope you guys are all able to as well. 

Hey guys,

Has anyone booked appointments for immunization, especially those without previous immunization records?

TIA!🤗

Hey! Yeah I went yesterday to get my immunizations. Be ready to make like at least 2 trips though for those and they are booking out fast! I got my immunization record online and printed them off.

Yes! There is a specific number to call for incoming nursing students at the SU Wellness clinic, you can find it on their website. Be prepared to make 2 trips to the clinic since for the tuberculosis skin test, they are required to see you within the next 48-72 hours for results. In one trip to the clinic I got 5 shots in the same arm.

Hang in there! 🤗 I was told that they will definitely roll out offer letters till December.

Oh great! That sounds good, thanks.

One more thing, what was your wait time like between booking appointments for immunization and getting it done?

I emailed the nursing immunization coordinator in September to see if I could get a hold of the immunization sheet. She sent them to me, and I made my appointment in the first week of October for this week. When I tried to change my appointment due to work in the middle of October they told me that they were booked out for the rest of the month and are now into November, right now I don’t know what that is looking like for appointments. For my second appointment they booked it right at the end of my first appointment. 

That seems pretty fast, thanks!🤗  At what cost or do we get them free?
