Nursing Hopefuls for 2019 :)
Hi prospective nursing students! Let's use this thread as a space to share information, questions, concerns, advice, and more with one another as the year progresses.

To get the discussion rolling, start off with your:
• programs of interest (both nursing and non-nursing);
• expected average; and
• career goals!

I'm thinking of applying to McMaster for nursing and health sciences as well as Western for nursing with a 95-96%. I'd like to be a nurse practitioner in the future, but do not have a particular speciality in mind yet.

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?
5) Where have you been accepted? If you don't mind sharing, with what average?
6) Any questions you have about nursing! We're all here to help.

Hoping for a 90 average this year.

Do uni's look at your highschool or uni marks?
If you are planning to transfer would universities look at your highschool marks or your uni marks? and also, would you need to have the prerequisites for that program?

Can I make it into Queen's, Waterloo or York with an ~84% average?
I was curious to see what you guys think, I'm applying to a B.Sc program in psychology. I've checked the admission averages but I'm not sure if 84 is high enough. Thanks
Which course do you recommend i take?
Nutrition and health or world cultures, they somehow don't offer world issues this year so its world cultures and im not sure how it is and how easy it is. 

Which course is easier to take a 90 in?

nutrition is a U course, 
and world cultures is a U/M course

undecided major help
So i am currently going to york for undeclared major, but I am planning on going to night school to fix 1-2 of my grades and then apply to another university. The problem is, when applying through OUAC, i dont know which to pick 101 or 105. Also the people from york told me when I apply the universites are not going to look at my gpa from the undelcared major is that true. Also if I end up staying in undelcared major how does one declare a major next year, do they look at my marks or something how does it work I cant find answers online. The help would be awesome thank you.

Questions for a recently admitted Nursing Student At MCMASTER
Hi there. I was in the same boat as you guys like 8 months ago lol. I applied to many nursing programs and got into every single one of them. I ended up at Mcmaster main! But I applied to Western main, Western Fanshawe, Ryerson main, Ottawa,  York, and Brock. Ask away on any admissions for any of these schools. 

I also applied to other programs other than nursing. (Waterloo life sci, Mcmaster Med Rad Sci, Mcmaster life sci, UTM life sci). I know this may seem like a lot of programs and a waste of money but I had no idea what I wanted to do. And I wasn't the smartest so I was scared I wasn't going to get in.

Applying to Schulich
This might be a stupid question, but does Schulich really only accept applications that are directly from high school? I'm a 105D applicant and on OUAC that's what it says. Seems kinda ridiculous since this is the first program I've heard of that only takes 101 applicants.

I was wondering what are some universities that are more career focused. What I mean by this is schools that are interested in helping you find a good job and they don't just focus on you having a good undergraduate experience. Some of the schools I am looking at are:
- University of Western
- University of Ottawa
- University of Guelph 
- York University

Potential York Student (help please)

I have a 91% average right now, and am looking at many different schools to apply to. I am looking into 3 programs at York. Concurrent ED, Communication Studies, and Human Resources Management.

I live about 15 minutes away on the TTC from York. The commute would be short and it would save me a lot of money. There are a couple things I am concerned about. I can hold my job I currently have, and stay with my family.

York has gone on strike many times in the recent years, and that is scaring me away. I have friends at York that have told me the education program is under review because of the strike that has taken place. I've also heard York is quite sketchy, especially during the late evening/night. Many people use the phrase "If you hold a fork, you can go to York". Are people not very smart that go here? I also feel as if I would be missing out on university experiences since I am at home.

Ultimately, does anyone know if there is a high chance York will go on strike again in the next few years? Is there anyone in any of these programs that can tell me what it's like? Or, anyone in general tell me about their experience at York?

NURSES HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi guys & girls,

I was looking into universities this year, went to OUF (Ontario Universities Fair) and asked many questions. When it comes to nursing (my dream career).

I have narrowed down to 3 universities:

1. Ryerson

2. York

3. McMaster

I am a kinesthetic learner, I love doing hands on. I hate theory a lot, since we need to memorize a lot. When it comes to university, mostly we will have theory's in nursing. I'm thinking whether which university would have a more hands on learning experience. Also plz give me tips on each university I listed above, how the nursing course works out, when the clinical placement starts, etc etc. I know that there isn't a best nursing school, as all programs teach mostly the same content. But, in your opinions, just tell me which would be ur preferable choice from the above universities I posted.

P.S: I live in Scarborough (in Toronto), so commuting would be a huge thing for me. Ryerson seems a good ride, York isnt bad, McMaster & would be farrrrr, so Idk what to say, if you all say McMaster is good, then I need to consider the travelling time & housing options. I am trying to stay with my parents, so that I don't need to pay residence and meal plan fees. I'm a grade 11 student, I still have time, so its better if you kind ppl can help me.

Sorry to make this post long.

Once again, plz help me.

Thanks & Regards,

Kevin George
