The immunization course for health care providers (e.g. nurses, pharmacists, paramedics,
and physicians) working in the continuing care sector is now available through Nova Scotia
Health’s RN Professional Development Centre online learning system.
There are two modules; each module takes approximately 2 hours to complete.
Module 1 focuses on the initial requirements for competency in immunization and
includes the Nova Scotia Health Immunization Course.
Module 2 provides specific information on COVID-19 Vaccines.
