I took HCA and our instructor Sherry H. did a fantastic job at making the load less overwhelming despite the amount of work that needed to be done in such a short amount of time. Despite all the stress and hiccups that happened with scheduling of our clinicals, and giving us the necessary information for the clinicals on a timely manner, the preceptorship has been enjoyable and good learning opportunity thanks to our clinical instructor Kiran K.
I enjoyed all learning experiences with my classmates and practicum opportunities with other healthcare employees. My instructor Sherry H. was amazing! After 43 years in returning to post secondary I was given every opportunity to be successful thru the support of my educator. Proudly I have achieve my certification as a Heath Care Assistant.
