BSN Drop in Advising Term 3 Announcement

BSN Drop-In Academic Advising – Term 3

Hello BSN Students,

I will again be offering drop-in advising times this term. As the BSN Academic Advisor, I’m available to share information about resources to support you in the School of Nursing and at UBC, to talk about any challenges you may be experiencing during your time in the BSN program, or just to check-in and chat about your experience, future plans, etc.

Beginning Tuesday, May 23rd drop-in advising will be on Tuesdays from noon-1:00 pm in my office, T288 in UBC Hospital.

I will host advising time during the weeks when courses are in session. If this time slot ends up being busy, I’m happy to add more time options.  Feel free to drop by to say hello or with any questions or concerns. You can come individually or with a group of students, either is okay.

Because these are open drop-in hours, if you have a particularly sensitive concern or would like to schedule a longer individual check-in appointment, please continue to email me directly to set up a time to connect. If you are reaching out to set up a 1:1 appointment, it is helpful to include a few days/times that work well for you, and I will do my best to accommodate your schedule. Scheduled advising appointments can be in person or over Zoom.

Wishing you all the best as the term gets underway!

Take good care,
Elisabeth Bailey – BSN Academic Advisor

NCAS and BCCNM Pilot and Field Test 2023 (paid opportunity)

Dear BSN students,

Are you a student or recent grad from an LPN or RN nursing program who’s excited to advance the nursing profession?  Come apply your new nursing skills and help us test the content of a new standardized nursing assessment.

The Nursing Community Assessment Service (NCAS) is looking for the following:

  • Students completing their last practicum in an LPN or RN program
  • Recent graduates from an LPN or RN program

This is a unique opportunity to better understand the development process of a standardized assessment.

The task: You will join a focus group to review and test the content of a bilingual multi-profession nursing exam. Your feedback will help us improve the assessment for future candidates.

Details: This is a paid activity. The work will be completed virtually in May – June 2023. Bilingualism (English and French) is an asset but is not required.

Payment: You will receive a $50 gift card per session. You can participate as many times as you want in our pilot and field tests sessions in May, June, and July 2023.

Interested? Complete this form to apply. Email if you have any questions about this opportunity.
