Program Description

This two-year diploma program is delivered in two formats; onsite and blended delivery for the fall 2020-21 semester. All theory courses will be online at all three sites (Lac la Biche, St Paul and Cold Lake). Labs will take place both virtually and on site. For returning second year students, we are looking at having students on site for approximately 12 days during the 12 week semester to take part in labs. First year students will take their theory classes online and will be on site 1 to 2 days for labs. We are currently wait-listing first years for Cold Lake, which means some students may decide to delay their education. Those students should free feel to apply or take a course in our University Transfer Program towards our Practical Nursing Diploma. Classes Start August 31, 2020. Our program emphasizes collaboration, health promotion and family-centered nursing. You will be equipped with the skills and knowledge required to work in a wide variety of health care settings, both rural and urban. Our enthusiastic, experienced instructors incorporate individual learning needs and imaginative, innovative classroom and lab experiences. As a graduate you'll be eligible to write the national licensing examination administered through the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA).
