It’s another successful year for the Loyalist College Practical Nursing graduates.
Today, the Belleville college announced graduates who wrote the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Exam in May and June were 100 percent successful.
“We are incredibly proud of the accomplishments of our Practical Nursing students,” said Dean of Health, Human and Justice Studies June MacDonald-Jenkins. “The faculty goes above and beyond to provide a highly engaging and inspiring learning environment with personalized instruction in clinical labs and groups. Their real-world methodology and mentorship prepare students for a rigorous eight-week integrated clinical practicum where they demonstrate critical thinking, practice judgment and decision making, and apply all the aspects of care associated with the RPN role in Ontario.”
The registration exam must be taken in order for a nurse to practice in Ontario. All 21 Loyalist candidates scored at or above the provincial and national averages in each category assessed.
Over the course of their two-year Ontario College Diploma program, Practical Nursing students are routinely tested. They take a four-hour comprehensive mock-exam, consisting of 200 multiple choice questions, which mimics the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Exam. This exam is written three times a year.
Due to demand, Loyalist is now accepting January intake applications for its Practical Nursing program. For more information, visit loyalistcollege.com.
