To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats
appropriate to the unfolding global situation. Spring PTS classes are commencing with
learning delivered in an online format.
The purpose of this clinical course is to give students an opportunity to pursue a particular area of interest in Occupational Health Nursing. The learning intentions, activities, and evaluation strategies for the course will be determined by the student and the course tutor using a learning contract. The learning contract will draw on the content and process threads of the OHN curriculum framework.
