I'm Nicole and I'm a first semester practical nursing student at Vancouver Career College.  

I've been in a care aide for the past seven years on an acute floor. I found myself wanting always do more and to be able to help more. The next logical step was to become a Practical Nurse (PN).

After the first week of classes I knew that it was the right decision and that was the right way to go.

It took about six months. I applied to many different places. My first criteria was location. Close to home was where I started my search and as little waitlist as possible.
I was excited and I didn't want to wait another day. I wanted to get started and finish it and start working.

It has been always somebody available to answer a question. They provide tutoring if we ask for it. They open this lab to practice on our own time and there is somebody here available to answer questions. It seems that they relate the curriculum back to the real life so that it kind of syncs it in a little better.

For this course time management is key. You need to be a good time manager and there is a lot involved -- a lot of work.

Eventually I would love to become a Registered Nurse (RN), but until then I am interested in trauma -- Emergency Room.

I would say that post-secondary education is a lot different than high school. You need to be prepared to put in work if you want to succeed.

Mary Nicholls
Vancouver Career College lab coordinator
I am the lab coordinator in the practical nursing program. I have been here since 2007 and I have been in this role since 2008. I have been practicing Licensed Practical Nurse for thirty eight years and I still currently practice at Surry Memorial Hospital.

Nursing and Health Facts
As of 2013, there is a demand in British Columbia for 18400 more health workers.
The BC Labor Market predicts that nursing employment will continue to grow in the coming years.

Mary Nicholls
Vancouver Career College lab coordinator
I feel that our students are very prepared and it shows with the last three national licensing exams. We achieved a hundred percent pass rate; so, it makes us here at Vancouver Career College very happy. We know that we have prepared them to not only pass the national exams, but be out there practicing safely.

Nursing and Health Facts
According to Work BC, it is projected that 56% of Licensed Practical Nursing job openings will be from retirements and 44% will be from expansion.
Nurses play a pivotal role in the quality of our healthcare. The Licensed Practical Nursing field is expected to grow approximately 2.3 -- 2.8% by 2020

Ariana
Vancouver Career College graduate
You are like a family here when you come to Vancouver Career College. Right from the moment I came and talked about the program Vancouver Career College staff and faculty offered me everything -- all the information I needed and they showed me around the school. I felt really welcomed and that was a huge deciding factor for me.

Nursing and Health Facts
The average age of nurses is 43.4 years of age (Source: Canadian Institute of Health Information)
The nursing workforce is aging. As people in this field grow older, employers will be looking for younger nurses to take their place.

Megan
Vancouver Career College student
I always wanted to be a nurse. It has always been a dream of mine. When I contacted Vancouver Career College it was very easy to enroll. I have been graduated for eleven years from high school, but it was very easy to transition and to come to college.

Nursing and Health Facts
In a Statistics Canada census, 51% of Licensed Practical Nurses work in hospitals, 37% in nursing homes, and only a small percentage work in local health centres.
These areas indicate where employers will be looking to hire new nurses in the coming years.

Sabita
Vancouver Career College instructor
The most rewarding part of my job is to have the Vancouver Career College students succeed.  Here at the college we provide the one on one training with the students as well; so, I am always with the students and I am able to watch each and every student work through every skill set.  Also, at the Vancouver Career College we have small class sizes where the students can benefit from the program.
