The new Learning Spaces website is now live and can be found at http://learningspaces.ubc.ca.
It’s a great resource to locate and view pictures of your classrooms outside of the School of Nursing, and find an informal learning space for conversation and collaboration or a quiet place to study.
If you received an email from Enrollment Services stating that all classes are cancelled on September 5, 2017 for general orientation at UBC, please disregard. This does not apply to BSN Classes at the School of Nursing. If your timetable (here) says that you have class on September 5, 2017, you do.
The Registered Nurses Foundation of BC is here to help you with your nursing school expenses! Their bursary program is now open until midnight, September 15 with equal opportunity for all qualified BC applicants. Visit their site at www.rnfbc.ca for all the details and be sure and check out the bursaries with specific eligibility requirements. For instance, if you are a direct descendent of a grad from a number of different nursing schools, you are eligible to apply for that bursary as well as being considered for each of the default bursaries. And please remember even if you applied in past years, each year’s process is treated separately and you can apply again…..best of luck!

Dear Term 3 students,
As we move forward towards the end of Term 3, I wanted to let you know some details about the Employed Student Nurses (ESN) process. If you plan to work as an ESN after Term 3 completion, you will need a Letter of Good Standing from the School of Nursing to complete your health authority ESN application.
Good Standing will be determined by the Progressions Committee once all grades have been submitted by Term 3 course leaders. Letters of Good Standing will be available during the 1st or 2nd week of August, 2017 and will be sent directly to you via email.
Please email Kelly Southam in the Student Services Office by July 24, 2017, if you need a letter or have any questions about the process: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please review the UBC School of Nursing ESN Policy to determine your eligibility to become an ESN.
