Comments about Practical Nurse Diploma - At the institution - Calgary - Alberta

  • Objectives
    Practical Nurses are an integral part of the Alberta health care team. As members of a self-regulating profession they use knowledge and skill to assess, interpret and develop client care, perform a wide variety of prescribed medical treatments and advocate for safe, comfortable environments and care for their clients. Our Practical Nurse program educates you to provide high-quality nursing in acute care hospitals, long-term care facilities and in the community. Practical Nurses work in the areas of acute care hospitals, medical surgical care, pediatrics, maternity, mental health, and long-term care nursing facilities.

    Upon successful completion of the program and the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Exam (CPNRE) you are eligible for licensure with the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA).
