Practical nurses stay in MB after graduation: Frison

In response to a question posed about the pathways of nurses who are trained in Manitoba, Assiniboine Community College President Mark Frison has penned a letter to the editor in the Brandon Sun. Reflecting on a graduate follow-up survey conducted at ACC, Frison writes that 96% of ACC’s practical nursing graduates are still in the province four years after graduation. The college educates 90% of practical nursing students in MB, he writes, and ACC additionally offers its programs in a variety of communities across the province where labour supply is often strained. Frison also referenced the ongoing provincial government investments and funding decisions related to nursing, and expressed hope for the next phase of program expansion. Brandon Sun (Acct. Req.)
