Health Care Assistant Program
In the Health Care Assistant program learn to work as a valued member of a health care team in a variety of settings, including geriatric facilities, acute care, or community settings. Under the direction and supervision of a health professional, HCAs provide care aimed at promoting physical, psychological and social well-being of clients across the life-span. HCAs work most often with older adults. In addition to the general HCA program, we offer specialized education for students who have English as a second language and for Aboriginal learners.
Practical Nursing Program
Practical Nursing is a career for people who wish to provide direct nursing care in complex, acute or community care settings. During the PN program you will gain the knowledge, judgment, abilities and skills to work with clients of all ages who are in need of professional nursing care.
