What Students Say

Brent Olsen, Health Care Assistant Alumnus 2019
The Health Care Assistant Program taught me a lot about who I was and what was expected out of me as a healthcare professional. Learning about self care, emotional stability, and how to present ourselves professionally in the workplace. The teachers provided us with their insight as fellow health care professionals, teaching the importance of empathy towards our clientele. I credit my success to the positive atmosphere amongst faculty at Selkirk.
