Diploma in Practical Nursing
Program ID: 38930
Practical Nurses work in concert with fellow healthcare specialists in settings like acute care wards, private homes, public schools and long-term care facilities. Vancouver Career College’s Practical Nursing Diploma program trains students to work in medical, surgical and rehabilitation care in a variety of positions. The program introduces students to the fundamental duties and responsibilities of a Practical Nurse. The curriculum follows standards laid out by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of British Columbia.
Students are trained in both holistic and clinical practices. Courses combine both classroom learning and lab work, as well as clinical placements. During this supervised hands-on training, students gain experience in facilities dealing with acute care, gerontology and community medical care. At the end of the supervised learning, students participate in a preceptorship and job search training, to help transition them from student to graduate.
