Nursing at Sprott Shaw / 加拿大博学学院 — 职业护士执照课程
Sprott-Shaw Community College - Health Sciences & Social Development Studies
PROGRAMS: Practical Nursing • Practical Nursing Access

Sprott- Shaw Community College offers a 10 month Practical Nurse Licensing Course, and upon passing the National Practical Nurse Licensing Examinations, students in hospitals, community polyclinics, senior care homes, clinics and other health institutions.

Even if students do not pass the Practical Nurse National Licensing Examinations, all students receive 2 year work permits to do any job.

The students can study the one year Practical Nurse Programme at C$28000.

Though the college also offers a 35 week programme,the students cannot study the 35 week Practical Nurse Access Programme, as the experience in India is not recognised.

The Practical Nursing program is expensive, but all students who completed the programme get a 2 year work permit even if students do not pass the national exam.

If students pass the national exam, a Practical Nurse will earn $22 – 28 per hour.  If we use the median of $24/hr, times  40 hours work per week, 52 weeks per year, the annual salary becomes $49,920 a year.  Divide this by 12 will equal to $4,160 per month in CAD before any overtime pay, which is 1.5 times by Canadian laws.  CAD vs. USD is about 3% less.

Passing rate of Sprott- Shaw Community College Practical Nursing students is more than 90%.

The fee is 2 times more expensive than public college or university, but in public college or university, there is a 3 to 5 year waiting list, and they only admit the Canadians.

About The Program
Health Care is one of the hottest career opportunities available. Practical Nursing is one of the quickest growing segments in healthcare.

Practical Nurses provide nursing care for patients under the direction of physicians, nurses and other health team members. In other places, this occupational group may be referred to as licensed nursing assistants, registered nursing assistants, certified nursing assistants or registered practical nurses.

Licensed practical nurses provide basic bedside care. They take vital signs, such as blood pressure, temperature, pulse and respirations. They distribute medication to patients, treat bedsores, prepare and give injections and enemas, apply aseptic dressings, insert catheters and perform other personal treatment.

They help patients with bathing, dressing and personal hygiene. They feed them, keep them comfortable and care for their emotional needs.

Outside the ward, licensed practical nurses observe patients and report adverse reactions to medications or treatments. They may collect samples from patients for testing and perform routine laboratory tests.

Note: CPR Certificate (Basic Life Support) Level C and Standard First Aid, Foodsafe and WHMIS will be completed during the program.

Shawn, Practical Nursing Grad
The experiences I had in our clinical setting were incredible. It was when all of our learning and hard work started to make sense and come together. Working in a team environment and being able to help people made coming to work enjoyable. I've never enjoyed any job I've ever had until I became a Licensed Practical Nurse. Thanks Sprott-Shaw!
