Okanagan to offer hybrid LPN Orthopaedic Certificate

September 24, 2021
Okanagan College is launching a new program that will provide Licensed Practical Nurses with advanced orthopaedic knowledge. The LPN Orthopaedic Certificate program will cover topics such as anatomy and physiology, orthopaedic pathology, and casting skills, and will prepare nurses to work alongside physicians and nurse practitioners to care for patients who have musculoskeletal system conditions or injuries. Students will cover theory online and complete their practicum at an approved location in their local health authority or community. The certificate is reportedly the first of its kind in British Columbia. Okanagan (BC)
