Practical Nursing Bridging
As the Practical Nursing program at Assiniboine is now a two-year diploma program, Continuing Studies at Assiniboine is offering three courses that will bridge a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) with a certificate to a diploma. Students must meet the following two requirements:
- Active practicing licence from the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Manitoba (CLPNM);
- Be a graduate of the Practical Nursing certificate program at ACC (Brandon, Winnipeg, or any Assiniboine rotating site).
Only one course will be allowed to be transferred from another Canadian post-secondary program.
