February 25, 2019

Norquest College has partnered with Edmonton Public Schools for a Health Care Aide program. A Norquest release reports that the program gives Edmonton students the opportunity to earn high school credits and provincially-recognized certification, and that training will take place at McNally School’s new Health Care Aide space. The space features hospital beds, lifts, and wheelchairs, as well as industry supplies, equipment, and technology. “Our inaugural Health Care Aide class includes 18 students from seven District high schools,” said Board Chair Michelle Draper. “We’re so excited to welcome these students to a program that allows them to explore the health care industry as a career option.” Norquest
