  2. Pennsylvania CNA to Canada CNA
    It is very unlikely. When I was in school for CCA (the cna of my province) there was a PSW who was retaking the course because she moved to this province.

  3. Life after school
    My class was all hired in the health region that we did our practicums in but for me. I moved shortly after graduation so I didn't have the advantage of the region already seeing my work. I applied...

  5. Did You Write in January?
    I wrote it. It wasn't as tough as I imagined it to be but I feel as though not everything in my program was represented. I admit I didn't study that much for it. Shortly after grad I was packing...

    I did but before it was sask polytec. It used to be called siast and it is really the only program available for the province but you can obtain it in different locations. I took most of my...

  7. Continuing Care Assistant experience?
    I was a cca in sk. I loved my job and the only reason I'm not a cca any longer is I have graduated from the practical nursing program and I'm waiting to move before I start nursing. I actually...

  9. Health Care Aide Clinicals
    Aide work is really sink or swim. I said to my preceptor this month that I made it as a CCA at *** I'll make it anywhere. He laughed because we both worked at that same facility and he knew what it...

    FTR I know that PN programs in ON do not teach IV starts, my facility hired new grads from ON and had to get them the education.

  11. Iv Initiation.
    Fiona please don't read this as snarky but that isn't necessarily true. I have seen new grad coming out of the same program I am in being able to start IVs without extra training. We have asked them...

  12. Iv Initiation.
    In my world, starting and IV is inserting them? I didn't realize there could be confusion on that. We did IV maintenance in 3rd semester (hanging a bag, just for clarity). In 4th semester we learned...

  13. Iv Initiation.
    Isn't this in your classes? I'm just a little confused because I'm in a Practical nursing program and as a student I can start IVs without having to take a course because it was in our classes.

  14. Seeking Advice - CNA
    I very much doubt they would accept it. Throughout Canada all of our programs are pretty similar, PSW-HHA-CCA-SCA but each province does not recognize the other provincial training. I went to school...

  15. Lpn program and Clinicals
    I would think all programs are different. My first semester we only had a practicum. We did all of our classes and then we went into ltc and did personal care. Second semester we did clinicals and...

  17. Medical procedures
    I'm not doing your homework. I would just like to know if you're really from Canada, because these questions do not make sense for a Canadian nurse.

  19. The future of nursing. Everybody is impacted. Big discussion in SK.
    All money being spent on healthcare does not stay here, that is false. I personally work with nurses who have immigrated here and send money back to their home countries. So yes, economies are doing...

  22. The future of nursing. Everybody is impacted. Big discussion in SK.
    This is how I feel after our meeting with a past SALPN president. I do not feel that patient safety is being challenged. RNs need to stay in their own lane and not try and tell LPNs what their...
