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).

As a university graduate, the Advanced Filmmaking program at Fanshawe was an incredibly welcome change of pace. It’s allowed me to focus on the hands-on aspect of filmmaking that I did not have the chance to learn while in University. The shift from reading theories and essay writing to producing content and connecting with my fellow filmmakers was exactly what I needed.
The environment of AFM is a lot more intimate than the university experience. You are always working in groups to create projects and receiving constant feedback from the professors. If you want to learn the ins and outs making a film, and meet the people who are going to help you do it, there is no better place to go than Fanshawe’s Advanced Filmmaking program.
