Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) has become the second largest nursing group in Canada. The LPN profession has evolved though education and clinical practice, which has in turn enhanced the opportunities for practical nurses. LPNs have the knowledge, skill, abilities and judgment to contribute in all phases of care, from prevention to acute treatment and management, to long term and palliative care.
The Practical Nursing program at Vancouver Career College is designed to train knowledgeable and competent practical nurses who will be able to work with other members of the healthcare team to deliver safe and effective care to patients in BC.
The Practical Nursing program at Vancouver Career College offers an enhanced focus on not only the science of nursing, but on the art as well. The practical nursing courses at Vancouver Career College combines classroom and lab work along with practicums where students receive one-on-one training where the instructors work individually with each student through each skill set. Students gain experience dealing with acute care, gerontology and community medical care.
Graduates of the Practical Nursing program will gain the skills to meet the competencies and standards as required by the College of Licensed Practical Nursing British Columbia (CLPNBC) and will be eligible to write the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Examination (CPNRE).
