Post Graduate Certificate in Nursing Administration and Practice with Co-op

Post Graduate Certificate Program in Administration & Nursing Practice teaches the specific occupational language and cultural skills necessary to work effectively as a nurse in Canada and to apply this knowledge to the National Council Licensure Exam. Students should be prepared to attend classes 32 hours per week and then do additional study hours of 20-30 hours per week.

During the program, students will work on test taking strategies and nursing topics that are essential in preparation for the Nursing Community Assessment Service (NCAS), which is a pre-requisite to write the NCLEX RN (Canadian National Nursing Exam). NCAS provides a three-part competency assessment for internationally educated health practitioners (IEPs) — including health care aides, licensed practical nurses, registered nurses, and psychiatric nurses — who hope to practice in British Columbia. The NCAS assessment process is a mandatory registration requirement for some regulatory organizations.
