GPRC to launch two health career pathways

March 16, 2021
Grande Prairie Regional College has announced that it will launch a Health Care Aide certificate program and a Practical Nurse diploma program. The eight-month Health Care Aide program will train students to provide basic health services and support patients in a variety of settings. The Practical Nurse program will train students in the required skills to be licensed with the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta and will prepare students to provide care within acute care settings. “Not only does this decision set the stage for better local outcomes, these programs will add even more depth to GPRC’s growing portfolio of important health care professions,” said Dr Carly McLeod, Interim Dean, Health, Wellness and Career Studies.
