Practical Nursing Access
The Practical Nursing Access program at CDI College recognizes past
education, training and work experience of applicants who have graduated
from a Health Care Assistant (HCA) program at an accredited BC
post-secondary institution. Those entering with an education other than
an HCA diploma, or from an institution outside of BC, will need to
demonstrate their eligibility prior to entrance through consultation
with our program co-ordinator.
As more responsibilities are given to LPNs in BC, the need for these
healthcare professionals will grow. The Practical Nursing Access program
gives students the ability to capitalize on their previous education
and work experience to find employment in the LPN sector.
In the Practical Nursing Access program, students will be taught to
efficiently deliver client-centred care to individuals, families and
groups of all ages, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Graduates of the
program will be prepared to work in various healthcare settings
