Sheridan joins provincial pilot and welcomes Practical Nursing students back to campus
July 14, 2020
Sheridan welcomed forty-one Practical Nursing students back to its Davis Campus today for the start of a two-week session which will see them fulfill their lab requirements before undertaking the 450-hour work placements required to complete their program. The completion of their fourth, and final semester in April was delayed due to the pandemic.

The pilot is operating in accordance with the framework set out by the Ontario government. A complete safety protocol was implemented before students set foot on campus, including:
- All students and employees were required to produce a negative COVID test result prior to participating in the pilot
- Physical distancing measures were put in place, reinforced with campus signage and floor decals to help maintain distance
- Masks/face coverings are mandatory for all students/employees participating in the pilot
“Given their training, our students are well-informed about the importance of protective personal equipment and its role in the workplace,” says O’Leary. “They are ideal candidates for the pilot, and we anticipate a successful outcome to this venture, which will see the addition of much-needed, trained personnel to our health care industry.”
