Following registration with the College of Registered Nurses of BC (CRNBC), graduates are eligible to practice nursing in a variety of settings, or enrol in post-basic nursing specialty programs such as operating room nursing, critical care nursing, pediatric nursing, maternal and child health nursing, outpost nursing, or mental health nursing. Many post-basic specialty programs require a period of nursing practice before entry. A post-basic certificate in Gerontological Nursing is available through Distance Education.
Certain basic skills and abilities are required of student to attain the competencies required of a Registered Nurse. CRNBC describes these in the document "Becoming a Registered Nurse in BC: Requisite Skills and Abilities". Applicants are encouraged to read this and contact the Nursing Program if questions arise.
