CDI College Adds Second Practical Nursing Open House in Winnipeg












Winnipeg, MB (PRWEB) June 28, 2011

CDI College is giving potential students another opportunity to learn about the new Practical Nursing program at the Winnipeg campus. Due to an overwhelming response to the Practical Nursing Open House on July 6, 2011, the college has scheduled a second session for Thursday, July 7, 2011.

The open house events will provide students with information about the two-year Practical Nursing diploma program, admission prerequisites and general information about the college. The program features a comprehensive curriculum that includes foundations in anatomy, physiology and holistic nursing, as well as courses in nursing theory, mental health, pediatric nursing and acute care. As part of the program, students are required to complete several clinical practice placements in which they apply their knowledge and skills in a range of healthcare settings.

“We are very excited to welcome Practical Nursing students to our Winnipeg campus,” says Dr. Bohdan Bilan, VP of Academics for CDI College. “As the healthcare industry in Canada continues to demand knowledgeable and qualified professionals to care for the country’s aging population, Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) will enjoy a challenging and rewarding career.”

Successful graduates will be prepared to write the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Exam (CPNRE) and, upon passing, register with the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Manitoba (CLPNM) in order to practice as licensed practical nurses. LPNs are able to work in various nursing areas including hospitals, medical clinics, long-term care homes, schools and community care centers.

Both events will run from 6:30-8:30pm at the CDI College campus at 280 Main Street. Attendees are asked to check in at 6:00pm sharp.

CDI College is now accepting applications for the Practical Nursing program at its Winnipeg campus. For more information about the program, head to http://www.cdicollege.ca. Follow along on Twitter and Facebook.

Winnipeg, MB (PRWEB) June 07, 2011

The demand for Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) in the Canadian health care system provides current students with several exciting career options in Manitoba and across the country. In response to this demand, CDI College is set to launch the Practical Nursing diploma program at its Winnipeg campus.

“Today’s practical nursing students face a constantly changing health care landscape due to technological advancements, government regulations and the effects of nursing shortages,” says Dr. Bohdan Bilan, VP of Academics for CDI College. “We look forward to welcoming students to the new PN program as they pursue this challenging, yet rewarding career.”

The 102-week diploma program includes an intensive curriculum of academic studies and clinical practica. Students complete courses across a variety of nursing categories, including community health, mental health, maternal, and pediatric nursing. Clinical practices allow students to apply nursing knowledge and skills to a real-world environment, while under clinical supervision and mentorship. Graduates of the program will have developed the required competencies established by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Manitoba (CLPNM). They will also be prepared to write the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Exam (CPNRE) to practice as a LPN.

Career opportunities in hospitals, acute care settings, long-term health facilities, care homes, medical clinics, adult day cares and community health centers will allow LPNs to make a positive impact in their communities and in the Canadian health care field.
