BC Health Minister Adrian Dix has announced that the government will be funding 1000 specialty nurse training seats at BCIT.
This increase will help with the growing demand for care throughout British Columbia.
The specialty nurse training program at BCIT is one of Canada’s most extensive programs. It provides nurses with advanced hands-on training for work in hospitals and community settings.
Specialty nurses work in high-skill areas, from emergency room environments to intensive care units for high risk cardiac patients.
