Vocational Qualification in Social and Health Care

Encounter and interpersonal skills are important in the work of a practical nurse. A practical nurse guides and assists individuals in their daily activities, promoting their participation.

The work of a practical nurse is guided by laws and ethical principles. Practical nurses work as members of a multidisciplinary team, and their workplaces include, among others, daycare centers, home care, care units, health centers, mental health, and substance abuse units.
