Nursing Hopefuls for 2018!!
There has been posts like these in the past years, so I decided to make one for 2018 applicants!

You can share...
1) What school(s) you`re applying to?
2) What other programs are you applying to as a backup?
3) What overall average are you aiming for at the end of the year?
4) For current/past nursing students, what is your advice for anyone applying for nursing programs this year?

I am applying to Western, McMaster, Brock, Ottawa and some collabs!
Hoping for a 90 average this year.

Nursing Hopefuls for 2017!
There was already a post for students hoping to become nurses in 2016 (as posted by Molly Perrigo). Now this new post is for those of us trying to become nursing students in 2017! 

So, please share: 
1. Which school(s) are you applying to? 
2. What other programs are you applying to as your back up?
3. What overall average are you aiming for in your final year? 

I have applied to Centennial, George Brown, as well as Seneca. 

My backup program is biomedical sciences at Ryerson. 

I'm aiming for an average of 90. 
Business programs I can get in with a 80-85 percent average since I can't pull off a 90?
Idk what I'm doing wrong with my studying but I can't get high marks in math,  maybe i should study 2-3 days ahead instead of the day before. I'm not sure.
Over the next two weeks I have 10 tests to do, and I can't pull off a 94 average for top business schools such as Schulich, Queens, Ivey and Rotman. Maybe if i studied ahead i might but its hard to change study habits.
I know York BAS, Ryerson Bcomm or BBA ( forgot) is easier to get in. Can you guys recommend me other programs that are in Toronto?

Main Site, George Brown Collab or Centennial Collab for Nursing?!?!
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?

Collaborative nursing
Hello,did anybody got acceptance for nursing collaborative with ryerson?what was the cutoff?
When will they open for next fall 2018?
Transfer Nursing- BScN
Hey Guys!
I was wondering if any of you yourselves, or have friends who transferred into nursing after a year or 2 of university? I have a high 80s average but still haven't gotten into any nursing programs yet. So if I don't get into any, I was planning on transferring after a year of kinesiology. Does anyone know what that process is like or how hard it will be? Im planning on trying to transfer into either western, queens, ryerson, york, or Ottawa. 
Thanks so much! Just trying to do whatever it takes to eventually get a BScN
Ryerson Nursing Help!
Hey guys I recently accepted my offer to the nursing collab program at ryerson in the george brown site! I have a few questions regarding course selections and all that, so if you could help that would be greatly appreciated! 

Do i pick my courses in the RAMSS or the george brown website? George Brown requires a student ID number to log in to their STU-VIEW site but i don't know where I can get that? I only have my ryerson student ID number. I applied through OUAC, not OCAS. Please help!

ryerson nursing
Guys I need your help!. please..I really need advice about being wait listed by Ryerson for the collaborative program for nursing this fall term. I have an 85.7 average and the program admission average is 83-88%. Is there any hope of me getting off the waiting list?. Is being wait listed a polite rejection?. Guys please pray for me!!

Nursing 2017
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?
Ryerson Collaborative Nursing YR1 - AMA
YR 2 Ryerson/GBC this fall, I'm happy to share the ins and outs regarding the program across the board, and of course about the application & waiting process.
How do I know if I am wait listed or rejected offers?
Will it show on the OUAC website or will it only show wait listed on the website for each individual school. Or does OUAC only show actual offers?

Anyone Ever Taken A Course At Virtual High School? What is it like? How did you find the course? How long did it take you?
Did any of you take an online VHS or ILC online course SNC4MO while enrolled in grade 12? 
Let me know your experience
I want to get into nursing and hoping that such courses are acceptable.
Also the ILC website says you should NOT be enrolled in secondary school..so am confused..

George Brown College?
I live in the GTA area and Im graduating high school this year and would like to become a dental hygienist. The only college in the GTA area that has Dental hygiene is George brown. Im afraid that my chances of getting will be low.Does anyone know what kind of average a person needs to get into this course and how competitive it is? 

im taking all the requires courses,biology, chemistry, English and math ( i also have physics too although it was not required) 
The grades I have range from 80% to 86%
Would I be most likely accepted?
Does Grade 11 marks matter?
I am currently in Grade 12 going towards the Nursing field. I want to apply to the following; 

1) York-Seneca 
2) York-Georgian 
3) Humber-UNB 
4) Ryerson-Centennial 
5) Ryerson-George Brown 

These are all collaboration programs. I had lots of problems with a particular teacher (not an excuse). I achieved the following marks last year; 

Math - 71% 
Biology - 65% 
Co-op - 93% 
Hairstyling - 80% 
Chemistry - 56% 
English - 56%
Religion - 72% 

I had an overall average of 73%. I'm stepping up my game this year, due to the point that I want to put my best effort in. My only problem is is will the universities I'm applying to look at my older marks? If so, should I start going to night school in order to boost my marks?
Applying to Nursing programs (Ontario) as a University student
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.
