- Position: Nursing Unit Assistant
I have wanted to work in the health care field for a long time but was unsure where to begin. Then I found the Nursing Unit Assistant program of Okanagan College. Being a key part of a medical team and helping patients seemed like a great fit for me so I decided to enroll.
Still working a full time job and going to school of night was tough but worth it. With the training I received I can work in acute care or residential care and wards ranging from cardiac, intensive care and beyond. The opportunities are endless!
I love my new job and I am very grateful to the Métis Nation BC for making it possible. With their assistance and guidance I have been able to reach my goal of working in the health care field. Thank you!
