Statement of purpose The Practical Nurse (PN) program is designed to provide graduates with opportunities to develop knowledge, skills, and values necessary to assist individuals and families in community, acute, and long-term settings. This program emphasizes care with a holistic multidisciplinary approach that encourages the practical nurse to work in partnership with other health care professionals. Upon successful completion of licensing exams, graduates will be able to work in a variety of health care settings. The program must be completed within ve years. Criminal record search Given the scope of the Criminal Records Review Act, CNC requires criminal record searches for applicants for program areas that involve working with children or other vulnerable persons. The cost of this search is the responsibility of the student. This requirement may result in a student having to undergo two criminal record searches: one through the RCMP (for those programs requiring it) and one through the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General. (Forms supplied with acceptance.) Students must provide proof of application for a criminal record search in order to be considered admissible to the program. The result of a criminal records search which identies relevant criminal convictions may prevent a student from entering into a practicum or clinical setting.
