Selkirk College is welcoming the first cohort of students to its new Practical Nursing Program in January 2023. Students will study in-person at the Trail Campus and take part in practicum opportunities in the region. Graduates will be eligible to take the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Examination to become licensed practical nurses. The program will operate on a non-competitive, first-come basis, and will be offered every second year. “Our program will focus on student success and outcomes through a cohort-based model that places emphasis on making sure that all learners get to where they want to be,” said Selkirk Allied Health Programs Coordinator Sarah Lechthale. “Having the program based in Trail strengthens this approach and we are excited to get started.” Selkirk Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
