ACC celebrates official opening of practical nursing sites in Virden, Otterburne

Assiniboine Community College has celebrated the official opening of new rural rotating practical nursing sites in Virden and Otterburne. The Virdin nursing site is located in a renovated building that is located across from the hospital, where students will be able to train as nurses without needing to travel far from their homes; while the Otterburne site is hosted at Providence University College. The rotating practical nursing site spaces received $19.5M from the Government of Manitoba. “Assiniboine continues to be responsive to Manitoba’s labour market and support economic growth by meeting community needs,” said ACC president Mark Frison. “Our rural rotating practical nursing sites answer the call on both of these priorities, and it is a pleasure to celebrate a new site in Virden and Otterburne this week.” Brandon Sun| Discover Westman| Pembina Valley Online Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
