|Field of Study:||Nursing/Registered Nurse (RN, ASN, BSN, MSN)
|Description:||The Practical Nursing Refresher program is designed to update students with current nursing knowledge to allow them to return to active nursing practice. It is available to practical nurses who are required by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Manitoba (CLPNM) to take a refresher program. This program was developed jointly by the Open Learning Agency for the British Columbia Ministry of Education, CLPNM and Assiniboine Community College.
This program focuses on caring. Applicants should enjoy caring for people and be willing to work with a team of health care providers. Those working in this field should be prepared to work varied shifts, including weekends. This program is self-paced and can be part-time or fulltime. It combines theoretical study and clinical practice to help students re-enter nursing with confidence. Theoretical study will take place at home and clinical practice will take place in a clinical agency in the student's region, if possible.
