Family NP Students Practicum

For FNP Students of Athabasca University:

If you're looking to complete your practicum at CRMC, please contact the Clinical Manager by clicking on this link. Make sure to mention the period of your practicum as well as your full name and phone number for a call back for instructions. We strongly suggest that you contact us as soon as you start your first semester at AU. Do not wait until you complete all the theory before you contact us as you may not be able to find a spot available for when you need it.

After contacting the Clinical Manager and confirming the availability of your placement/s, make sure to download this document. Sign the confidentiality agreement and have your physician or NP complete your immunization form. Email the signed confidentiality agreement, the completed immunization form and the blank Advanced Student Information (ASI) form to your NP Clinical Placement Coordinator for West Canada. She will complete the ASI form and send the entire package for you to Cranston Ridge Medical Clinic. Once we receive your complete package, we will call you to confirm your practicum placement/s with us.

We currently have available spaces for the following terms:

  • May 2025 - 1 FNP student

  • September 2025 - 1 FNP student

  • January 2026 - 1 FNP student

  • May 2026 - 1 FNP student

  • September 2026 - 1 FNP student

  • January 2027 - 2 FNP students

Before commencing your practicum placement at CRMC, please make sure to watch the MedAccess EMR tutorial videos by following this link!

For FNP students of any other university in Canada, the USA, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand:

We currently accept only Family NP students from Athabasca University, and we will always give priority to AU students. However, if you would like to complete a practicum at CRMC for which no AU student has applied, you must do the following:

  • Obtain full and unrestricted license with the College of Registered Nurses of Alberta (we do not consider applicants who are not already on the CRNA register at the time of their application)

  • Ask your practicum placement coordinator to contact the clinical manager via email by clicking on this link and request to start the procedures to create a practicum partnership with CRMC (we only accept enduring partnerships, we do not consider one-off requests)


If you are training to become a Nurse Practitioner in your country and wish to apply to our clinic for an elective placement, you may want to familiarize yourself with the Scope of Practice for Nurse Practitioners and relative legislation in Alberta as this may be significantly different from the jurisdiction of your University. In Canada, Nurse Practitioners enjoy one of the widest scopes of practice in the world that is unmatched in most other jurisdictions including the United States with the exception of some British Commonwealth countries such as New Zealand and recently the UK. The scope of practice of a Nurse Practitioner in Canada is de facto comparable to that of a physician.
