This program prepares students for offering nursing care and services to a varied clientele. These healthcare professionals work in hospitals, long-term care facilities, rehabilitation centres, medical clinics as well as home healthcare agencies.

Collège de l'Île has two campuses: in Wellington (western area of PEI) and in Charlottetown (the provincial capital). Regular programming is offered in both campuses. We use videoconferencing, and more specifically the Vidyo system, to offer courses in all our programs. For the Practical Nursing program, the nursing laboratory is located in Wellington. If you are taking theoretical courses at the Charlottetown campus, you will need to travel by your own means to the Wellington campus for your laboratory work.

Organization: Association of New Brunswick Licensed Practical Nurses (ANBLPN); this accreditation is recognized by the P.E.I. Licensed Practical Nurses Registration Board.

The Practical Nursing program is accredited by the ANBLPN. Is it considered an equivalent to CCNB's Practical Nurse program. The program accreditation requires students to pass all courses with a mark of 75% in order to be eligible to write the national registration exam. Passing the exam authorizes them to be licensed to practice the profession. The fees for the national exam are the responsibility of the student.

A partnership agreement between CCNB and Collège de l'Île leads to the issue of dual diploma.
