Postgraduate Nursing Diploma in Canada for Sri Lankan Nurses

SELC’s PGND Program Prepares Sri Lankan Nurses for Migration to Canada
SELC’s post-graduate nursing diploma (PGND) program is designed to prepare internationally educated nurses (IENs) for nursing license and nursing practice employment in Canadian healthcare systems. The program provides IENs with the knowledge and skills they need to adapt to Canadian nursing standards and succeed as registered nurses in Canada.

The PGND program covers the Essentials of Canadian Nursing, critical thinking, clinical judgment, decision-making, communication skills, health, and health inequities across the lifespan. Students will also work on various interactional case studies, examination approaches, clinical decisions on knowledge-based practice, cultural awareness, and clinical skills. This will improve their ability to articulate in various settings as applied within the Canadian healthcare setting.

After completing the PGND program, IENs will be eligible to apply for Canadian nursing licensure. They will also have a better understanding of the Canadian healthcare system, Canadian nursing professions, and career options.

SELC’s PGND program is a great way for Sri Lankan nurses to migrate to Canada and start a new career in nursing. The program is accredited by the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) and meets the requirements of the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA).
