Yorkton, SK – Parkland College is pleased to acknowledge that all 18 graduates of the recently completed Practical Nursing program successfully passed the national licensing exam governed by the Saskatchewan Association of Licensed Practical Nurses (SALPN).

Saskatchewan LPNs can have various roles in the health care system in areas such as prevention, acute treatment and management, as well as palliative and long-term care.
