The clinical practice course is a minimum of six weeks (full-time) in length. You will have a three-week clinical experience in both an acute and a long-term care setting. This includes a short experience in a community (home care) setting. During clinical practice, you will practice directly with an experienced health care aide preceptor, under the supervision of a College clinical instructor.

Clinical practice is arranged by the College. Unit assignments and individual shift schedules will be arranged according to the guidelines agreed upon by RRC Polytech and the health care facility.
