C onsider a career as a Practical Nurse if you are compassionate and have a desire to serve your community in the healthcare field. As a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) you will work closely with other health care specialists in acute care wards, private homes, public schools, care home or nursing home.

The curriculum meets the competencies and standards laid out by the British Columbia College of Nursing Professionals(BCCNP).
The Practical Nursing courses combine both classroom learning and lab work. You will also gain hands-on experience through four separate, supervised practicum opportunities, which exposes you to real-world best practices and field training.
Practical nursing students will also take part in a final preceptorship at the end of the program to help transition you from student to graduate.
