The offering's curriculum is in accordance with the College of Nurses of Ontario's Professional Standards and National Entry-to-Practice Competencies for Registered Practical Nurses. It will focus on assisting you in developing your knowledge and critical thinking, communication, teaching and learning, professionalism, advocacy, research, and leadership and ethical-decision making skills — and applying these skills in health care settings.

The diploma resulting from this Practical Nursing for Internationally-Educated Nurses program may enable you to continue your academic studies at the baccalaureate level. For example, RPNs with a diploma in practical nursing (with a minimum 3.0 GPA and no failures or repeated courses on their transcripts) may continue their studies at Centennial's Bridging to University Nursing program and, upon completion of this program, can apply to Ryerson University's post-degree completion program to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
