College of the Rockies Hosts Health Information Session

submitted: Wednesday, November 20, 2013

College of the Rockies is holding a Health programs information session on Wednesday, November 27 at 7 pm in Room 205 at the Cranbrook main campus.

WorkBC lists many health care jobs on their ‘High Opportunity Occupations in BC’ list with above average or excellent projected employment growth and job openings through 2020. Students interested in joining this thriving field can learn more about the College’s Health Care Assistant, Practical Nursing and Practical Nursing Access programs.

Health programs Department Head Heather Hepworth says, “This is an excellent time for individuals interested in making a difference in the lives of others to enter the healthcare field.  With an aging population creating an increased demand for health services and the need to replace experienced workers as they retire, employment prospects are above-average in the healthcare field.”

The evening will include an overview of  healthcare programs, information on financing your education, employment prospects for graduates and an opportunity to ask questions of program faculty.  Refreshments will be served and all those who attend and apply to a health program by December 13 will have their application fee waived.
