I had a good score in all of my grade 11 and 12 courses. I heard of this college through info sessions at my high school and I heard that this is one of the best universities for Nursing. Moreover, KPU offers many other programs and it is easy to shift from one program to another if our interest changes.
I wanted to do something in health care and couldn't think of any other profession better than this. I want to help people in the hospital setting, emotionally, physically and psychologically. I wanted to be in a type of profession where I can help my community and help heal them quickly and provide the best of my knowledge. I believe that when I become a nurse and if I can make a difference in any one person's life than what can be better than this.
I applied to Douglas and KPU. I get to know about all the fee structure through the website of KPU. It was close to my residence, so the daily commute was very easy. Moreover, it had all the courses available which I needed at Surrey campus with available multiple timings so it was easy for me to manage my work along with my studies. I passed grade 12 from India from Guru Nanak Public Senior Secondary School, Amritsar with all A+.
I opted for this program because I want to go further in medical school and this is a prerequisite for my further studies. Our class size at KPU was around 35 students per section which were very convenient. The minimum requirement of scores from grade 12 was minimum C+ in all the courses of sciences. I gave two maths tests- Maths Assessment test and Maths placement test and I required to get at least 11/15 till section C.
It was my last resort and I know someone that works there as a professor though not in my field. I messed up my application for my wanted university and I did not realize until later so I just applied for this one.
It is okay. It is necessary for some courses but not all and it is long. A lot of the content can be learned online without being in school. I would rather not pay and spend 4 years completing the program.
