Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) Diploma Program
In the Practical Nursing Diploma Program, you will acquire the practical and theoretical grounding you need to give professional nursing care to individuals, families and groups in a variety of settings. You will work through a combination of course work and practical clinical placements, completing a program that will prepare you for your subsequent work as a Practical Nurse. As a graduate of the Practical Nursing Program, you will be prepared to nurse using Professional Standards of Practice and competencies established by the British Columbia College of Nursing Professionals (BCCNP). Upon completion of the program, you will be eligible to write the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Exam, required for licensure in BC.
This Program is under development and will be offered in January 2020.
