Accelerated BScN Prospective Student
Hi all,
I've been accepted to the accelerated BScN program for Sep 2018 and I have some questions about the program.
1) I've been hearing a lot of mixed reviews about the PBLs and I was wondering if someone could explain how those courses are graded by breakdown of how much each evaluation/assessment is worth.
2) What does the typical day/week in each semester look like? In terms of # of lecture hours, PBL hours, clinical hours etc.
3) About how many students are in each class?
4) Is it generally easy for Mac nursing grads to get hired right after graduation (after passing RN and jurisprudence exams)? I heard that some hospitals (mainly outside Hamilton) don't like Mac grads cause of the non-traditional PBL teaching style??

I also applied to Western and U of T and am waiting to hear back from them - I heard that they're sending acceptances in mid-April.
