St. Lawrence College Practical Nurse graduates have beat the national average on the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Examination (CPNRE) required before entering the profession. 

Of the 44 graduates from Kingston, 42 passed the CPNRE, a 95% passing rate which is above the national average. Kingston graduates scored higher than the national average in nine of the exam categories such as critical thinking, foundations of practice and collaborative practice.

“The dedication of our faculty in ensuring that our students are well prepared is reflected in these results,” said Barry Weese, Associate Dean, School of Health Sciences at SLC. “Excellent graduates are the result of excellent faculty and support staff; their impact on student success cannot be underestimated.”

SLC’s Practical Nurse program is as old as the college, which opened in 1967, as a Nursing Assistant certificate. In its current format the Practical Nurse program is a two-year diploma and is offered on all three SLC campuses.
