Psychiatric Nurse (3012)

Nurses trained exclusively as registered psychiatric nurses (RPN) are regulated in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. In all other provinces and territories, registered nurses (RN) may work as psychiatric nurses without separate registration. (National Occupational Classification)

The University of Manitoba does not offer a specialized program in Psychiatric Nursing, but rather a degree in Nursing leading to a designation as a Registered Nurse.  View the links below to learn about Psychiatric Nursing programs across Canada, including Brandon University's program (and their Winnipeg campus).
