Nursing question!!???
Hi everyone,

Just recently this year around November I decided that I wanted to become a Nurse. I was unsure in the past but I feel like it is right for me. I have taken biology and chemistry but I'm not sure if I will get in with an 87.3% average for the GBC, Centennial, and MoMac collab programs? Do you think I stand a chance??????

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. 
I got a 55 in gr 11 functions by not doing my homework that much and not asking questions when i should have and not going to extra help and not reviewing. If i fix all these could i get atleast an 80 in gr 12 advanced functions.
105D Nursing Applicants!
I have a couple questions - 
Does your application only count after you have submitted your supplementary application? Do 105 application get lesser priority than 101? (Ryerson Nursing)
Has anybody been accepted yet? If so, what average and when did you apply? Thanks guys and good luck with all of your applications!
Colleges in Toronto: Art Fundamentals programs
I'm a 24 years old female from Switzerland and I'm going to Toronto next year to do an university pathway program at a language school (April - August). After that, I'm planning to go to a college with something like an one year Art Fundamentals program, which covers many fields like graphic design, animation, photography etc. Because I don't know which subject I want to focus on yet. I've graduated with an vocational diploma in business and I've been working in this field ever since. So I don't really have any academic background in art.

But I've been able to be creative in the past at work, like designing Xmas cards, calendar and I also like drawing, photography, making firefox persona in my free time. I really like art so I want to change my career and I want to do that abroad, as I want to travel and widen my horizons.

I've been researching for a long time and found these colleges with basic art programs:

George Brown College: Art and Design Foundation Program (1 year)
Seneca College: Art Fundamentals (8 months)
Humber College: Art Foundation (1 year)
Centennial College: Art and Design Fundamentals (1 year)
Sheridan: Art Fundamentals (1 year)
OCAD: First-Year Art

Humber sounds good, so I'm planning to apply - but does anyone know more about the other colleges? I would choose based on their courses but an overall experience or opinion about the college itself would help me a lot to make a decision as well.
Tbh I can't finance the studies, but I will still apply and try to get scholarship/credit and work on the side to make it happen because I really want it.

Sorry for my long post D: but I would be very glad if you could share your opinion or tips etc. It's my first time going alone abroad. Thank you so much!

Applying to Nursing Programs 2017-2018
Hi! I'm currently a grade 12 student interested in nursing. I have a 94% avg from grade 11 but my grade 12 avg isn't looking too hot. Most of my required courses are in the high 80s to low 90s. My avg will probably end up in 85%-90%. 

I'm planning to apply to the nursing program at McMaster, York-Seneca, Ryerson-GB, and Ryerson-CC. My backup programs are Life Science at Waterloo and maybe Biology at UofT. McMaster is my first choice but I honestly don't think I'll do well on the CASPer test.

What are my chances of getting into McMaster if I do mediocre on CASPer? How long should the answers be? How did you study for CASPer? Any advice? What are my chances of getting accepted into one of my choices? What are my chances of getting rejected by all of them? What other schools (located in Toronto) should I apply to? Is it a bad idea to commute to school (approximately 1.5hrs) while enrolled in nursing? 

I'm pretty stressed out over this so any answer is greatly appreciated!

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?

Help?! Medical radiation sciences
Hey, so I'm applying to McMaster Medical Radiation Sciences and Biomedical engineering at uOttawa and well I'm unsure about something. If I get an 88% average with my top 6 which may not include math but law instead for instance, would I still have a shot of getting in? An 88% is higher than the minimum of an 85%

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..
