VIDEO SERIES: Patient and Family-Centred Care


Discover how to partner more effectively with clients and their caregivers with our two-part video series on Patient and Family-Centred Care. In the fall, nearly 500 Licensed Practical Nurses attended these sessions as a live webinar. Now it’s available anytime for your learning. Thank you to Paul Wright, RN BSc.N CNNc, Manager, Calgary Zone Patient Family Centred Care for lending your expertise.

“Connecting to my patients and their families in meaningful ways that result in them regaining a sense of hope and power in their own ability to heal (to whatever level is possible). To see them regain their sense of self is deeply satisfying as a nurse. To be partners in that intimate journey back to self is humbling.” – LPN

  1. Hello Ma’am/Sir! My name is Anne, currently living in Philippines. I’m very much interested at taking up LPN. I’m wondering how much is the tuition fee both full time and part time?
    Will patiently wait for your response. Thank you very much.
