RPN Bridging to Diploma Program

As of January 2005, all new RPN's are required to obtain a two year Diploma in Practical Nursing as a basic requirement of registration with the College of Nurses of Ontario. The diploma is not required for those already registered, but existing RPN's want to upgrade to the Diploma level in order to remain competitive in the RPN work force. RPN's who have completed their RPN Certificate earlier than this, or who were educated at a school other than St. Clair College will have to meet with the Continuing Education Nursing Studies Coordinator to discuss a personal education plan based on individual needs (educational resume required). There may be opportunities for RPN's currently working in the field to challenge one or more courses based on practical work experience and/or prior learning. Windsor applicants, please call 519-972-2727 ext. 4501 to arrange for advising.

RPN BRIDGING CLINICAL A
PNR509A
The focus of this clinical experience is to apply the theoretical concepts learned in this bridging program: assessment, ethics, community, mental health, gerontology, management, leadership and research; and to promote a more advanced level of critical thinking. The student will be expected to follow the CNO standards and guidelines and apply advanced RPN competencies. The student will work in a preceptor type of clinical learning environment. The clinical placement will try to give this experienced RPN an enriching experience in a particular area in which s/he lacks applied knowledge or in an area of special interest to expand her/his depth and breadth of knowledge (ie: the RPN may currently be applying many of the concepts in the workplace but has little experience in community, so a community placement is arranged; or has applied all the concepts but wants to strengthen one's leadership abilities in which a clinical management position would be an appropriate placement). The main focus for this section of the clinical experience is on management of care of clients as opposed to the RPN administrator, educator and researcher roles. 3 units of credit. $492.00.
