How to become a Licensed Practical Nurse in Canada

These comprehensive programs, spanning approximately 1-2 years, combine classroom instruction with essential clinical practice to prepare you for the nursing field. Upon graduation, the next step involves applying for licensure with your local regulatory body, a process that typically includes passing the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Examination (CPNRE) or an equivalent exam.
