I didn't do the program at UofA, but the one at UofC. I found the program a great learning experience, however the exams were difficult and they marked hard for essays/projects. The nursing program has it's own grading scale compared to the rest of UofC (completely deflates your GPA tbh), not sure if the scale is the same or modified compared to 4 years ago. I think to get a 4.0 you needed about >92%. My total average was about 84-85% (I worked hard for it), and I ended with a 3.5. I have a ton of experience under my belt now in healthcare, but need to go back to school for 2 years to boost my GPA now. Bitter sweet.
