Practical Nursing Program
The two-year Practical Nursing (PN) diploma program helps prepare graduates to give qualified professional care to individuals and families in a variety of settings.
As of September 2012, the diploma program will deliver an expanded curriculum over four semesters, with a training break in the May to August period between Year 1 and Year 2. (Previously, the certificate program was delivered as a one-year program with 50 weeks of instruction).
The new program covers new nursing competencies, puts more emphasis on critical thinking, and supports increased levels of autonomy and leadership.
Graduates are eligible to apply to write CPNRE exams in May of their graduating year for licensure as a Practical Nurse.
