The purpose of the program is to educate practical nurses to work with individuals, families, groups, and entire communities in a variety of settings. In this program, students learn to work as autonomous and collaborative partners with clients and other health care providers, and to do so effectively within the practical nurses’ professional role and scope of practice. The program has been designed with a focus on health promotion, caring and humanistic principles and the curriculum continues to evolve in response to current nursing and health care evidence and trends. This program will assist students to develop a sensitivity to people’s experiences of health, healing and health promotion. Clinical practice and simulations are integrated throughout the program providing experience in long term care, hospital, and community settings.

Graduates qualify to write the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Examination and if successful, become eligible for registration with the College of Nurses of Ontario as a Registered Practical Nurse (RPN).

I did film at Fanshawe and it delivered what it promised. Some of my instructors were awesome while others were so-so. I grew up in London and stayed close to home but realized after I was in the program that there are other schools in Toronto that have a better reputation. Also people talk about Fanshawe's "slacker vibe", but you don't have to fall into that trap. You can find slackers at every school. In the end, I have a stable job in my field and I live in Toronto. So no regrets, but make sure you put in the work and start networking from Day One.
