When it comes to getting a practical education in an industry destined to increase in demand as populations increase, Southeast College enables locals who may be aspiring to work in healthcare to study here at home in Weyburn.
“We offer actually three full time Continuing Care Assistant programs, one being at our Weyburn campus, of course,” explained Sheena Onrait, Manager of Marketing and Communications for Southeast College. “Students come in from a September start until May, and they complete the entire continuing care certificate program in that time frame.”
More information on the program can be found HERE.
For those who aren’t able to attend school full time, Onrait said SC offers the best of both worlds.
“We also have part-time modules that are offered across our southeast region as well, so students that may be already employed by a health region, or they’re working towards their continuing care assistant modules, we have that option for them as well.”
Availability of part-time courses are subject to campus programs running that semester. More information can be found HERE.
Those interested in Practical Nursing, however, will have to wait a couple of years.
“Our always popular Practical Nursing Program is a two-year diploma program,” said Onrait. “We just had an intake for students here in September of 2018, so they’ll continue next year and then we’ll take our next intake for fall of 2002.”
