Selkirk College Exceeding Expectations
Shawna Kerr has lived in Nelson for more than 20 years after relocating to the West Kootenay from Victoria. She enrolled in the Health Care Assistant Program after being out of college for more than 20 years. She graduated from Selkirk College in 2019.
"The HCA program at Selkirk College has exceeded my expectations and given me confidence. I was reluctant to go back to school for fear of new technology and being behind the times. I decided to attend and was pleased by the amazing instructors that really supported and helped students to succeed. I have a toddler at home and was able to keep up with full-time school and assignments."
"I enjoyed how the program was put together with so much flexibility and fun activities to help learn the material."
A Pathway to Employment
"This program was affordable, fast and the end result was a rewarding career helping others. I was also awarded a scholarship at the end of the year for my efforts. I am now employed as a Health Care Aide and have as much work as I need."
"I enjoy my new career and am grateful for an amazing new experience."
