The one-year Pre-Health Sciences certificate program is designed to assist students in determining which health science program will best suit their needs. It provides students with the opportunity to examine the expectations of various health science disciplines and to assess their suitability and compatibility in relation to these expectations.

Recent high school graduates or mature students wanting to return to postsecondary education may wish to access this program to enrich their knowledge of health science related courses and also to obtain necessary prerequisites for admissions to other programs.

The Personal Support Worker program is designed to prepare students with the knowledge and skills needed to provide support services to people living at home, in long-term care or acute care facilities, and to function as integral members of the health care team. Those who have successfully completed the program will have demonstrated the ability to effectively communicate with clients, families and members of the health care team.

The campus also offers the Registered Practical Nursing program through part-time studies and continues to offer other part-time courses that meet local industry needs.
