Practical nursing (PN) is the second largest nursing group in Canada. PNs combine nursing knowledge, skill and judgment to treat health conditions, promote health, prevent illness, and assist clients to achieve optimal levels of health and wellness. Practical nurses use the nursing process to assess, plan, implement and evaluate the outcomes of holistic care provided to diverse clients and their families throughout their lifespan, as disease progresses, as well as through palliative stages.
As a regulated nursing profession, PNs practise within the provincially established scope of practice, competency standards, and code of ethics.
