Giving students the opportunity to improve their lives was one of our founding principles. We looked at the limited job opportunities available for some people, mainly new immigrants to Canada.
In response, we began training immigrants as well as Canadians, who either were in the health field or wanted to enter it. Nurses and doctors with foreign credentials from other countries have taken our course to gain an understanding of the Canadian health system.
There are several reasons why our program is attractive to potential students. Our tuition fees are more affordable than many private schools because we have less overhead to pass on to students. Because of our small class sizes, there is more opportunity for one-on-one instructor/student time.
Additionally, one of our affiliates hires health care aides and nurses, providing greater opportunity for employment upon graduation. The majority of our students are typically hired either by the long-term institution where they are sent or the hospital where they do their practicum.
