yconic is the place where you can give and get the help you need for your life as a student. To help keep our community an enjoyable, helpful and safe place for all members, please adhere to the following guidelines.
1. Be nice to people. It's okay to provide constructive criticism, but there is no need to insult other members. For example, "X major is over-saturated right now. You might have trouble finding a job" is fine. "Your major is dumb. Have fun working in fast food," is not helpful nor appropriate.
2. Ask actual questions. If you're looking for help with something, titling a thread "HELP, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO" isn't going to appeal to the members that may be best suited to help you. Be specific and title your post with relevant information.
3. Don't abuse the anonymous feature by pretending to be multiple people. Surprise, surprise, we know who posts what :)
4. Please only tag relevant interests when you create a new thread. Adding unrelated interests is unlikely to get you the help you're looking for and can frustrate other members.
5. Avoid spamming. This includes replying to your own thread for the sole purpose of moving it up the discussion feed.
6. Don't expose other people's personal information. If someone is posting anonymously, please respect their privacy.
7. If you see something you don't like, click the 'Report' button in the post menu and a moderator will review it. Please avoid commenting on inappropriate posts as this only encourages them.
8. Did a post help you? Click the "Was this post helpful?" button to help us recognize our most helpful members and so that other people will know the response was...you guessed it, helpful!

I'm currently looking into a lot of health care careers, and many of them interest me. However, I know taking nursing is considered the smartest route, since it opens doors for master programs, gives you possible research experience (depending on the school) and it is quite easy to get a job with just the bachelor. However, if i do decide to go into something else after i finish, what options do i have (other than med school) and what do I need to do to get into them? For example, if i decided to o a Masters in Speech Pathology, would i be ale to do that with a bachelors of nursing?
I’m here to ask some things about getting into nursing but I will give a little bit of background information on myself. Student services at my school don’t help the grads much and my parents are immigrants and don’t know very much in terms with helping me. I want to go for nursing but I have my two worst courses this semester (data & Chem) I have approx 60% in these courses but I am a good student I am an honour roll student. I have a feeling when the acceptances come out I will have hopefully a 85% average. Before I get the rant on how I will have issues in uni just spare me the negativity because I am stressing I am a very good hands on learner which will compensate for the theory aspect although I am mediocre in bio (80%) I just need to know what I can do to be accepted I am looking into applying to brock, Ottawa, York, Trent (maybe some collabs) not sure 100% yet is there any advice to stand out and hopefully get accepted or will I just become a rejected failure /: thanks in advance to the people who pull through with some advice
I'm in grade 10 at the moment. I am interested in going into nursing when I get older. I was looking into universities such as Queen's, York, Toronto, and a couple others (still keeping my options open for Ontario universities). The issue is I know my education is going to be very expensive and I was trying to start early to earn scholarships to pay for my education, but many scholarships aren't open unless it's your graduating year. If anyone know sites I should go on, ways I can earn scholarships, or any tips, if would much appreciated! Thank you!!
So, I've heard really great things about both the college collabs with Ryerson and was wondering if people can put their input on how they like their programs etc if you go to any of the ryerson nursing programs.
- Are you treated differently in the collab programs compared to the ryerson mainsite?
I am currently a Fanshawe student, with two prior years in University as a health science student. Im taking General sciences at Fanshawe and was wondering if anyone was in a similar situation as me. I have all the pre requisites for pretty much every BScN program, but my high school grades range in the mid 80's. Thats why I'm taking general sciences, and in my first semester I finished with a 4.2 GPA. Im applying to Western-Fanshawe collab, Ryerson-George Brown Collab, McMaster, and Windsor for nursing. Will these schools look at my fanshawe GPA for acceptance, and accept my high school pre reqs or will they just disregard my fanshawe year?
hi, i really need some help and guidance to getting into occupational therapy at U of T. So basically, I just finished by biomedical sciences degree at university of Waterloo. I am mainly struggling with the problem of my grades as i am currently still working on my experience and job shadowing. I know UofT looks at your last two years, and my gpa for my last two years is roughly 3.0. It's considered low but what can i do to pull my grade up when i already graduated? Please help.
also, does U of T look at what program you are in and perhaps be lenient on programs that were more difficult?
From a long time i wish to be a journalist but when i grow up i do a serious operation and i sow so many peoples suffering from the disease so much, and in every night i stayed in an isolated place for no one heard me and i cry alone all the night and i told god to help every one suffered like me or in all the patients in the whole word with the time I’ve a wonderful nurse keep me resting all the time and advice me that i should be strong and to didn't cry i sow her that in the time that i suffer she was suffering with me and crying like she who passed from this operation, day by day we've become a very best friends and i give her a promise that i will someday be a nurse like her and I will every one need a help and i will be like she wish me to be. i will never forget this promise and i will be hard and a good student i wish this school accepted me to make my dream come true
I was wondering if anyone who had any information on early acceptance at nursing. I've applied for fall 2017. I also applied to all three programs available there (main site, at George brown, and at Centennial). Is there any early acceptance for nursing at Ryerson?
I heard that students hear late from Ryerson (like May). But I was wondering if there is early acceptance there. My grade 11 average meet the requirements. I'd really appreciate any help here.
Hi! I'm a grade 12 student at the moment and i would like to know more about bridging programs specifically nursing bridging programs. Im thinking about applying to Ryerson and MacMaster and i believe they offer bridging programs for nursing. Id like to know more about these programs. Also, I was wondering about the whole nursing experience and what to expect.
Finishing up my first semester in Neuroscience at McGill and I'm looking to apply to BScN nursing programs in Ontario (Reasons: the only BScN in English in QC is offered at McGill and I'm not sure I'll be able to transfer + I can live with family in the GTA). I'm looking to apply through OCAS since it's cheaper - so I'll just be applying to uni-collab programs (Ryerson/GBC/Centennial, York/Seneca & Humber).
Are there any students who have successfully transferred from a Canadian university to a BScN program in Ontario? If so, to which schools? And what was your university GPA &/or high school avg? Does anyone know which is weighted more in terms of admissions? Do they just take an overall average, or look at your science pre-reqs specifically?
Any type of feedback would be much appreciated :).
I'm not sure what my GPA will be, I'm aiming for AT LEAST a 3.3 on a 4.0 scale. In high school I think my overall average was around 92%, and in CEGEP it was around 94%.
For anyone else going through the same process, feel free to comment as well :) - where are you transferring from? Where are you applying to? etc.
