Your Career Path
The Practical Nursing Program is a two-year program consisting of five semesters including a summer semester. Once successful on the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Exam, the Registered Practical Nurse can be employed in a variety of settings including acute care hospital, short-term/rehabilitation facility, long term care, community care and nursing stations in their communities to care for patients across the life span.
The program follows our unique blended delivery model at Oshki-Wenjack. Our delivery model allows students to complete on campus sessions twice per semester consisting of course, lab, and clinical placement. The rest of the courses are delivered through online and independent study at home in their communities.
In partnership with Confederation College, Oshki-Wenjack’s unique cultural and community-based program delivery model enables you to stay within your home community for the majority of the program – which includes practicums.*
