Admission Requirements

All applicants must meet the general admission requirements for Lethbridge College programs, as indicated in the Admissions section of the calendar.

  • It is strongly recommended that applicants possess the ability to type at a minimum of 30 words per minute.

Practicum Experience Requirements: This program has a required Practicum Based Experience (PBE) component. The College dictates the legal terms and conditions governing the PBE.

Students must meet and maintain certain requirements to participate in the PBE setting as determined by programs, practice agencies and/or legislated by government bodies. These may include

  • Health (e.g. immunizations, screening tests, etc.)
  • Privacy and security (e.g. police information check, IT access, etc.)
  • OH&S requirements (e.g. CPR certification, Fire Safety, WHMIS, Mask Fit-testing, etc.)

Immunization: As a post-secondary health care program in Alberta, provincial immunization standards apply to students in this program. As per the provincial “Standard for Immunization of Post-Secondary Health Care Students and Students in Other High-Risk Occupational Programs,” all Post-Secondary Institutions (PSI) have the responsibility of assessing the immunization status of each healthcare student at the time of initial enrollment and to ensure all healthcare students are fully immunized before leaving post-secondary programs. There is an administrative fee for this assessment and vaccinations to become fully immunized.

Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) coverage: PBE placement agencies and employers usually require WCB coverage on behalf of the student. Students enrolled in post-secondary institutions in Alberta are deemed to be employees of the Province of Alberta and, as such, provided WCB coverage. In certain instances for students outside of Alberta, WCB coverage may not be provided (e.g. non-Alberta residents taking a course solely through distance learning with a PBE placement outside of Alberta). These students are advised to contact the program prior to application.

PBE sites will include Lethbridge and may include surrounding rural communities. PBEs may include day, evening and/or weekend schedules. Students will be expected to travel to assigned sites and will be responsible for arranging travel and any associated costs.

Note: Applicants who lack the required academic admission requirements can apply to the College and University Preparatory Program to upgrade for your program.

Prior Learning Assessment (PLA): If you have experience working in this field of study, you may be eligible for Prior Learning Assessment.
