Newly licensed grads get ready for careers in BC’s healthcare industry
Burnaby, BC – June 26, 2013 – Practical Nursing grads from Vancouver Career College in Burnaby and Kelowna recently passed the May 2013 CPNRE exam with flying colours, with each campus boasting a pass rate of 100%. Thanks to their comprehensive practical nursing training, the grads can now confidently enter their new careers in hospitals, clinics, schools and other healthcare settings.
“These recent test scores highlight just how effective the Practical Nursing program at Vancouver Career College is,” says Larry Heinzlmeir, VP of Marketing for Vancouver Career College. “We are extremely proud of our grads and wish them the best of luck in their future careers.”
The Practical Nursing program includes a comprehensive foundation in patient care, including the nurse-patient relationship, medication administration, and clinical decision-making. In addition to coursework with experienced nursing instructors, students have multiple opportunities to develop, integrate and demonstrate their knowledge through real-world practicum placements.
With this powerful combination, students learn how to manage and prevent disease and illness and promote good health across the lifespan, as well as make a difference in the lives and well-being of patient’s families and communities.
Few professions offer as many opportunities and areas of specialty as nursing. At Vancouver Career College, students study and practice the competencies and standards established by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of British Columbia, the regulatory authority for licensed practical nurses in the province.
