ACC receives $2.1M to offer one-time practical nursing diploma in Neepawa


Assiniboine Community College will be receiving $2.1M in funding from the Government of Manitoba to offer a one-time practical nursing diploma program in Neepawa. The program will enable 25 practical nursing students to complete their studies while remaining close to home with hopes that they will stay in rural health settings after graduation. Graduates will be able to work locally at the new Neepawa hospital, which is under construction and is expected to be complete in 2025. “Nursing is Assiniboine’s largest single program and our graduates have a track record of getting jobs and staying in Manitoba,” said ACC President Mark Frison. “This welcome investment by the Manitoba government allows us to respond to needs in Neepawa.”
