100% Passing Rates for Practical Nursing Grads

Grads From Vancouver Career College in Burnaby and Kelowna Shine as Exam Results Are Unveiled

BURNABY, BC and KELOWNA, BC--(Marketwired - October 30, 2014) - Fourteen Practical Nursing graduates at Vancouver Career College in Burnaby and Kelowna earned a 100% pass rate on the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Examination (CPNRE) this fall. Grads also scored higher than the national average for first-time exam writers, with the Surrey class beating the national average score by 9%! 

The CPNRE is a national exam that is one of the steps most jurisdictions use for provincial registration. The purpose of the exam is to protect the public by ensuring that the entry-level practical nurse possesses the competencies required to practice safely and effectively. Grads who pass the exam have one year from the notification of their exam results to apply for registration with the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of British Columbia (CLPNBC). 

Although, scoring a perfect pass rate on the CPNRE is quite a feat, it is not uncommon for Vancouver Career College grads to do so since our students from our Abbotsford, Burnaby, and Kelowna campuses have obtained 100% pass rates on the exam eleven different times since 2010. These results have certainly helped establish the Practical Nursing program's reputation and high standards. Achieving such scores is definitely a testament to the quality of education and training provided by Vancouver Career College's instructors. It also speaks volumes about the dedication and commitment of the Practical Nursing graduates from our different campuses. 

The Practical Nursing program at Vancouver College is designed to train high caliber, knowledgeable, competent, and accountable practical nurses who will be able to work in collaboration with other members of the healthcare team. The curriculum provides students with multiple learning opportunities to develop, integrate, and demonstrate knowledge, skill, and judgment that are translated into superior reflective practice that meet all competencies and standards set out by the CLPNBC.
