The primary purpose of this program is to help nurses understand how to perform a paediatric assessment and to critically think through the findings. The regional program is not only useful as a tool for new staff during the orientation process, but valuable for experienced staff wishing to brush up on their existing paediatric knowledge.

The Southwestern MNCYN’s Paediatric Advancement Program has developed a Regional Paediatric Orientation (RPO) to promote the consistent delivery of safe, quality paediatric care across our region.
Core paediatric nursing competencies will facilitate learners to develop the theoretical knowledge required to support care provision for paediatric patients in the region.
The self-directed learning packages are based on current best-practice guidelines. The Program is available online for learners to work through at their own pace.
Please note, this is not a credit course.
Registration is on a first come, first served basis. There are a limited number of spots per session, therefore, you may be placed on a waiting list. If that occurs, you will be contacted when a spot opens up.
