This program prepares students to acquire the knowledge and skills to provide nursing care to a varied clientele. During the two years of training, theory courses, lab exercises and clinical practicums allow students to learn the care techniques used in institutions. This program prepares students to write the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Examination.


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

Information: 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.
