Athabasca University and Northern Lakes College have established a partnership that will address the need for registered nurses in rural areas of Alberta. Graduates of Northern Lakes’ Practical Nurse program will be able enter AU’s post-LPN Bachelor of Nursing program and acquire the skills and credentials needed to become a registered nurse (RN). Both programs are offered primarily or fully online, enabling students to study while staying in their communities across northern AB. “By creating even more pathways to a nursing education, we can continue to be part of the solution to the health care needs of Albertans,” said AU Faculty of Health Disciplines Interim Dean Dr Steven Johnson.
