Success Story
At the time of looking to start school, i was a stay home mom to my two kids ages 2 and 6. I had wanted to go back to school to get a career started. I visited all the colleges in Nanaimo and I found Sprott Shaw College to be very welcoming, as well as my cousin recommended them. While I was in the Executive MOA program I surprised myself with the grades that i achieved, and made wonderful life-long friends. A couple months into my program, Susan Poelman (Instructor) gave me the information on a clinic in town that was looking for a temp for two weeks to catch up on paper work. After two weeks they had me organizing parts of their database, after a few months they told me that they would like me to stay on part time. I was working 4 hours a day, 5 days a week around my class hours. After graduation the clinic gave me a promotion and raise! I have been with this clinic for 2 1/2 years – i have now become second MOA (assistant manager). I love the Monday to Friday day time hours and being able to be home with my family on weekends. The doctors and MOAs at my clinic are wonderful – we are a very strong team and work extremely well together. My best advice is to talk in person with the colleges in the area as part of your research, I found that you can’t get everything you need to make such an important decision solely from the internet.

What were you doing before attending Sprott Shaw College?

Would you recommend Sprott Shaw College to your friends and family? Why?
