News

Personal support workers and nurses will now have access to their next career through the $13.3M pilot program “Step Up to Nursing” offered through New Brunswick Community College, Coll├Ęge communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick, University of Moncton, and University of New Brunswick. The workplace-based initiative will enable workers to study part-time and upgrade their credentials through one of two program streams: Personal Support Worker (PSW) to Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and LPN to Registered Nurse. Students will continue to earn full-time wages and keep their benefits as they complete the tuition-free program. The program is supported by federal and provincial government funding.
