Program Overview


As a practical nurse, you will provide routine care under the supervision of a registered nurse or a medical doctor to disabled, injured or sick patients. Courses in anatomy and physiology, fundamentals of nursing, and pharmacology are supported through extensive clinical placements. At the end of the program, you will complete 160 hours of practicum in a clinical site with a licensed practical nurse as your preceptor, giving you real-world experience and important exposure to a potential employer.

Practical nurses must be licensed to work in Canada. Upon graduation, you’ll be ready to complete your Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Exam (CPNRE) to be eligible for initial licensure.
