UBC or University of Calgary?

I got in to Direct-Entry Nursing at Calgary, meaning I’m guaranteed a seat in the nursing program, and I’m over the moon! I’ve also gotten into Food, nutrition, and health at UBC. I’m not as thrilled about the program, but I live in BC, and I could go home on the weekends and see my family, as well as a few of my friends are going to UBC, where I know no one at Calgary. Just wondering other people’s suggestions or opinions on what i should do, and if anyone can point me towards someone who took either program so they can give me a review of it. Thank you!

  1. Nursing is much more employable than a nutrition degree and you’ll have no issues finding employment after graduating. Only go into nutrition if your intention is to pursue further schooling afterwards.

  2. Do you want to be a nurse or pursue a career in food and nutrition? You can get into nursing as a postgrad program but that is more difficult than getting in out of high school, requires more time in university, and will cost you more money. If you want to be a nurse, I don’t know why you would turn the offer down.
