As a student in Practical Nursing, you’ll learn nursing theory in class, online and through hands-on clinical placements. In addition, you will study anatomy and physiology, English and take general education subjects such as psychology and Canadian studies.
Experience in the nursing practical laboratory and in several hospital and community settings will be integral to your studies.
In order to practice in Ontario as a Registered Practical Nurse, Practical Nursing Program graduates must be successful in the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Examination administered by the College of Nurses of Ontario and must maintain their registration certificate.

- been convicted of a criminal offence or an offence under the Narcotic Control Act (Canada) or the Food and Drugs Act (Canada)
- any physical or mental condition/illness that may affect ability to practice.
Applicants who do not meet this requirement will be reviewed by the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) to determine if registration will be granted.
Successful Ontario registrants are eligible for registration throughout Canada (French required in Quebec).
