A Winnipeg mother of 2 claims that she was astonished to find out on the day of Friday the entrance requirements for Red River College’s nursing program had changed, putting her spot at the school in the jeopardy. Changes in Red River College nursing program has left the mom totally devastated.
Carla Malcolm, 24, now has until the month of May 2017 to meet the latest requirements in case to keep her spot on the acceptance list.
“I feel like I have spent much money and time, travel and daycare, to get where I have gotten. And to merely be turned down and pushed out is not fair,” she stated.
Malcolm was hoping to begin school in the year of 2018.
She is “totally devastated” after seeing those changes in Red River College nursing program and her spot at the school is up in the air despite appreciating the significance of setting a high bar for nursing students.
She said she is humiliated to now tell friends and family in her home town she may not be capable to become the nurse she is always dreamed of being because of the changes in Red River College nursing program.
“I’ve based my future on getting into this program.”
Going to be an issue, claims Malcolm
Now to meet admission needs for the program, high school students entering Red River must have a B in the subjects of English and math and post-secondary students should have a grade average of C+.
Malcolm has been working since the year of 2014 to get ready for the nursing school; she has already taken 4 university credit courses in the subjects of anatomy and physiology.
She claimed that she would instead continue with university-level courses rather than coming back to the high school level but news of Red River’s changes to requirements came after post-secondary school admission target times.
Her plan is to enroll at the institute of University of Manitoba later this season of winter and attempt to finish the courses in the time period for the month of May deadline.
“It is not impossible but it is surely going to be an issue,” she stated.
Katherine Baxter, chair of nursing at Red River College, claimed that the school made changes to its admission needs to better reflect expectations on students at other institutions in the place of western Canada.
“We looked at other nursing programs and the majority definitely is competitive and these are very consistent with other programs across the country,” stated Baxter.
Baxter claimed that the school will be working with entire students to make certain they know their choices — some can utilize their nursing credits toward another program at Red River if they so selected.
“Finally the nursing profession is a challenging profession. A lot of serious decision and decision making,” she stated.
“We are attempting to make sure that the students we accept will be victorious in both the program and the profession.”
