Practical Nursing Access

You are here

Diploma  Information

The Practical Nursing Access program was developed in response to the need for recognizing past education, training and work experience. If you are currently a Health Care Assistant (HCA), Resident Care Attendant (RCA) or a Home Support/Resident Care Attendant (HS/RCA) and received your diploma from an accredited BC post-secondary institution, you can upgrade your training to become a Practical Nurse.  If you have certification or a diploma from a post-secondary institution outside of BC, you will need to demonstrate your eligibility prior to entrance to this program. (You will require a letter from your previous employer plus proof of certification)  Note:  International students will require an English proficiency assessment.

The diploma program at Sprott Shaw College, will prepare you to provide nursing care alongside other health care professionals in a variety of settings.   

To graduate from the Practical Nursing Access program you will be required to receive a passing grade in all theory courses, successfully complete all practice experiences and display a master of all clinical competencies and meet the entry level competencies for an LPN as set by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of BC (CLPNBC).

Upon graduation, you will be eligible to write the national Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Examination (CPNRE).  Upon receiving a passing grade, you are then eligible to apply for a license to practice in BC from the CLPNBC.
