Northern Lakes College and Lakeland College collaborate to increase access to Practical Nurse program

Posted on May 12, 2017

(Lloydminster, Alta.) Lakeland College and Northern Lakes College are working together to increase student access to practical nurse training.

Northern Lakes College (NLC) will offer the Practical Nurse program at Lakeland College in Lloydminster. While courses are offered primarily online, the lab component of the program will feature face-to-face instruction at the Lloydminster campus. Lakeland College already has health labs in place that are used by Lakeland’s health care aide students. Students will have access to many of Lakeland’s services such as residence, athletics, recreation, information technology and wellness services.

“We’re pleased to work with Northern Lakes College to provide another program option for people in our region who want to pursue careers in the health sector,” says Alice Wainwright-Stewart, president of Lakeland College.

“Northern Lakes College has a number of collaborative partnerships and is very happy to be working with Lakeland College in delivering the Practical Nurse program” says Ann Everatt, President and CEO. “The success rate of NLC’s Practical Nurse students is high and there is an increasing demand for LPN’s so we anticipate this program to fill quickly.”
