Practical Nursing Refresher Program

The Practical Nursing Refresher (PNR) program is designed for former Licensed Practical Nurses who would like to re-enter the profession, but who do not currently meet all of CLPNM’s continuing competence requirements.

Registration in the PNR program requires a referral from the CLPNM.

In order to be referred, you must first apply to the CLPNM to have your eligibility for reinstatement assessed.  For more information on the reinstatement process, please see here.

The PNR program is comprised of modules of independent self-paced theory as well as clinical and lab components to ensure that the applicant will be able to successfully re-enter the profession upon completion. For further information on the PNR program, please visit the Assiniboine Community College website.
