CBI Health is proud to be an approved partner of the WeRPN BEGIN Program!

The Bridging Educational Grant in Nursing (BEGIN) program was created by WeRPN in partnership with the Ontario Government. As part of a commitment to recruit nurses to the Long-Term Care (LTC) and Home and Community Care (HCC) sectors, BEGIN helps Personal Support Workers (PSWs) and Registered Practical Nurses (RPNs) explore new professional pathways and bridge to RPN and RN roles.

Eligible participants enrolled in an accredited PSW/RPN, RPN/RN, or PSW/RN program can access BEGIN grants to reimburse their tuition and mandatory ancillary fees. Participants in the program will commit to a year of employment with CBI Health, for every year or portion of a year that they receive funding for their education (up to three years) through a Return of Service Agreement. Upon graduation from their programs, participants will make a positive impact on our provincial healthcare system.
