Что я буду изучать?

The Health Care Assistant program provides opportunities to develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to provide professional care to the elderly and those facing other health or illness challenges. This 29 week, full-time program combines theory, lab study and practice experience.

Health Care Assistants receive direction and supervision from other health professionals such as Licensed Practical Nurses and Registered Nurses. Student practice experiences are an integral part of the program. Clinical practice experiences occur outside of the college setting. While the majority of practice placements are in centres close to CMTN campus communities, it may be necessary to utilize agencies in other Northwest communities. Students must arrange their own transportation to and from practice experience sites and assume related costs. Students may be required to work a variety of shifts (e.g. four-, six-, eight- and/or 12-hour shifts, including days, evenings, nights, and weekends.)

Career opportunities

Graduates are qualified to work as frontline care providers in a variety of settings including:

  • Client's home
  • Adult day care
  • Assisted living
  • Complex care facilities

Learners should be aware that some employers require Grade 12 or equivalent for hire. Dual Credit students are not eligible to work in the Community setting until they reach 19 years of age.

The CMTN Access to Practical Nursing program creates laddering opportunities to a Practical Nursing Diploma.
