|Description:||An aging population, shorter hospital stays, and increased costs for long-term care are creating an increased demand for personal support workers (PSWs). Cambrian will prepare you to work as a PSW in just eight months through three clinical practicums and hands-on training in the College's state-of-the-art simulation lab and nursing lab.
You will become prepared to assist clients with activities of daily living and contribute to the quality of life of individuals who live in a facility or community setting by promoting their independence, dignity, social, emotional and physical well-being, mobility, personal appearance, comfort, and safety.
As a graduate, you may be able to bridge into Cambrian's Practical Nursing program to further enhance your career options.
