  1. Thank you for the advice, I will certainly build good relationships with the educators within the NP program.
  2. Congratulations! I am in Alberta which might make that much more difficult (excuse me if I'm wrong, I read that out of province applicants have way lower chances). I also did not take into account my work, for some reason my focus is really on the ECs. Thank you.
  3. Thank you for this response. I definitely experienced some of this in school with other students who stated they want to pursue medicine.
  4. Hello everyone, I'm currently an RN working in obstetrics (have been doing so for 1 year since I graduated). Also residing in Alberta. My GPA is as follows: 1st year 3.23 2nd year 3.45 3rd year 3.8 4th year 3.86 My grades aren't great at all, which I'm fully aware of. I wanted to apply to medical school ever since I was in high school, but I really liked nursing and kind of stopped thinking about med school throughout my undergrad. Now that I have a bit more experience under my belt, I want to do more. I am also applying to become a Nurse Practitioner which I think can also bump my GPA because it is a Masters degree. My biggest concern now is my ECs and references. I volunteered a moderate amount in undergrad, but have no research experience. Along with this, I have lost touch with most of the people I volunteered with and so getting them as references would be difficult. In my career now, there are quite a few people I could ask for references for nursing related positions (managers, educators etc.) but I know that asking them for a reference for medical school might be strange and honestly a bit awkward. I guess if anyone else has been in my position - what would you do?
