Our Programs - Year 1
1. Health care assistant - accelerated program
This is the accelerated version of our Health Care Assistant program. Here our students receive the same training and credentials but complete their studies within six months. Furthermore, students will participate at a designated facility or a hospital and interact with patients throughout the practicum training period. This training will help students learn proficiency and the confidence most needed on a job.
2. Health care assistant and communication program
This program is ideal for international students or new immigrants who do not speak English as a first language. It is also suitable for students without a health care background who are not familiar with medical terminology.
3. Postgraduate diploma in nursing practice with co-op
This program is designed to prepare internationally educated nurses to adapt to the Canadian health care setting combining theory and skills based on the entry-level competencies in their specific role. Furthermore, it will help learners advance the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to function effectively and acquire knowledge to become culturally competent nursing professionals.
