This program provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to enter employment as beginning practitioners. Upon successful completion of the program, students will be eligible to write the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Exam (CPNRE). Upon successful completion of these examinations the student will be eligible to apply for licensure with the Government of the Northwest Territories.

Courses are offered in a combination of settings including classroom, laboratory, and clinical practice. The program covers concepts and skills related to health and nursing, basic microbiology, human anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology, human growth and development, psychology, and nursing theory. In recognition that the North is culturally diverse, the constructs of traditional knowledge and health/healing practices are woven throughout the curriculum. Clinical practicums occur in a wide variety of settings throughout the Northwest Territories. Students may need to travel to meet program requirements.
