Obtaining a Practical Nurse Access Certificate

There are some instances where a Canadian online education requires you attend classes on a campus and not just via the Internet. To graduate with a Practical Nurse Access certificate, students must attend two labs on campus, composed of seven to eight students. These labs are mandatory and students must cover the expense of attending them. The Canadian online education for a Practical Nurse Access Certificate also requires practicums. Two work placements or practicums are undertaken by students enrolled in the Practical Nurse Access certificate. One work placement is done in a long term care facility, and the second in an acute care facility. Both placements are clinically supervised and students get to participate and work with nursing teams and apply their nursing knowledge and skills. Graduates are prepared to work as a part of a health and nursing team in a variety of health settings. Upon graduation, a student may apply to the College of Licenced Practical Nurses of British Columbia (CLPNBC) for examinations and the designation of LPN (Licenced Practical Nurse).
