Practical Nursing (RPN) Programs

One of the ways the College of Nurses of Ontario protects the public is by making sure practical nursing programs in Ontario prepare graduates with the entry-to-practice competencies required to practise as a Registered Practical Nurse (RPN). They do this by reviewing and approving all Ontario practical nursing programs.

The approval process includes a review of the program’s curriculum according to the entry-to-practice competencies. They review this every five years.

A program is Approved when it meets expectations for the following program approval indicators; 

  • entry-to-practice competencies are evidenced in the program’s curriculum with no competency gaps
  • KPI results are within or above the provincial average
  • CPNRE results are within or above the provincial average.

Approved with Conditions (Category 2)

A program is Approved with Conditions when it has failed to meet expectations for one or more of the following program approval indicators;

  • competency gaps are identified in the program curriculum
  • KPI results are below the provincial average for two consecutive years
  • CPNRE results are below the provincial average for two consecutive years.

Not Approved (Category 3)
