RDP creates accelerated Practical Nurse Diploma program

Red Deer Polytechnic has created an accelerated Practical Nurse Diploma route for health care professionals with previous training. Eligible applicants who have earned a domestic or international health care credential can complete evaluations to receive prior learning credit towards the program’s first year courses. Students will prepare for future work in the areas of community health, maternity and pediatrics, and mental health. “Through this program, students will be able to build upon their previous knowledge and skills by receiving expert instruction in modern facilities and enhanced practicum and learning experiences with industry partners,” said RDP School of Health and Wellness interim Dean Heather Dirks.
