New Era for BC Practical Nursing

Did you know? Last October, BC’s licensed practical nurses voted to join the BC Nurses’ Union*. This means practical nurses will now be represented by and with professional nurses. If you want to provide high-quality care while maintaining a flexible schedule, this is the perfect time to become a Practical Nurse (PN) in BC.

Practical nurses provide nursing services to patients and their families as well as assist doctors and registered nurses in hospitals, clinics, care facilities, or patients’ homes. Many PNs work part-time, choosing when and where they work. Some eventually study to become registered nurses.

At Sprott Shaw, you can learn the ins and outs of practical nursing in just 75 weeks, and prepare for the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Examination (CPNRE). Plus, you can enroll at any time – no need to wait for the next semester or open spots – and even return for free skill upgrades.

Our New Westminster campus moved to a larger renovated space in October, unveiling an all-new hands-on LPN lab. For details about the Practical Nursing program, click here.
