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. In addition, the PNR program synthesizes theoretical study and clinical practice to facilitate successful re-entry into professional nursing practice. Theoretical study will take place at home and clinical practice will occur in a clinical facility in the student's region, if possible.

If you have been referred by CLPNM to take a refresher courses, then we can help you re-enter the nursing profession with confidence.

This program was developed jointly by the Open Learning Agency for the British Columbia Ministry of Education, CLPNM and Assiniboine Community College.
