I graduated in 2019 and grew so much, personally and professionally, over four years because of this program. Clinical placements were very good but you need to prepare for them. Ask questions before you begin and expect to practice, practice, practice, because class work won't fully make you ready for what happens in a real health care setting. But I was given plenty of help in areas where I needed it. For nurses who want research specialties, there are better nursing programs out there, like UofT, UBC and McMaster. I am interested in paediatric nursing and will need more experience and training in this field, but what I learned was certainly enough to pass the NCLEX. Western's NCLEX rating is higher than most universities! Best of all was the community. Great people supporting each other 100% of the way, especially important during these trying times.
