The program consists of 12 courses that include a combination of theory and practice-related exercises before you participate in a 150-hour hospital practicum.
Students complete a 150-hour practicum at the end of their program that provides a meaningful work-like experience and exposure to a hospital setting. To qualify for practicum, you must successfully complete all courses within the program.
Your practicum placements will reflect the business practices of your practicum host. Many nursing unit clerks work part-time hours and varying shift schedules, so your practicum shifts will reflect the schedule of the host you are paired with.
While we try to place students near their city of residence, we cannot guarantee a practicum placement in a particular city. For example, students who live outside the Fraser Valley may need to travel to the Fraser Valley to complete their practicum. Transportation to the practicum site is your responsibility.
