The personal essay questions are an important part of the screening of candidates for the Primary Health Care Nurse Practitioner (PHCNP) program. Your scores will be based on your ability to address all of the questions in a comprehensive manner. We suggest you include examples of your experiences to illustrate your responses. Answers that are overly brief or very general will not score a high mark. Your written submission is a key factor in determining whether you are selected for admission to the PHCNP Diploma program
