Practical Nurse


To meet Alberta's growing needs in health care, the demand for licensed practical nurses is increasing. NorQuest's Practical Nurse program, one of the largest in Canada, will prepare you to become a professional practical nurse educated to give high-quality care to clients in a variety of health-care settings.
Students are more likely to be successful in this program if they:
are physically and emotionally able to manage workplace demands.
have access to a vehicle to travel to complete their clinical practice.
have access to a computer and internet, and basic computer skills.
Applicants are requested to review the job requirements, and assess their ability to fulfill the demands of the occupation of practical nurse. As a practical nurse, you must be able to:
work shifts and weekends
be on your feet for extended periods of time
use your knees, back, and arms to move clients who have minimal body strength
function effectively in stressful situations
perform all skills independently
Students are required to travel to various locations in order to complete their clinical practice. Within the time frame of the program, every effort is made to accommodate students in clinical practice placements. Access to a vehicle may be required.
Refer to the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta website for more information about becoming a licensed practical nurse.
