An aging population, shorter hospital stays, and increased costs for long-term care are creating an increased demand for personal support workers (PSWs). Cambrian will prepare you to work as a PSW in just 8 months through three clinical practicums and hands-on training in the College's state-of-the-art simulation and nursing labs.
You will become prepared to assist clients with activities of daily living and contribute to the quality of life of individuals who live in a facility or community setting by promoting their independence, dignity, social, emotional and physical well-being, mobility, personal appearance, comfort, and safety.
As a graduate, you may be able to bridge into Cambrian's Practical Nursing program to further enhance your career options.
What's in it for you?
- Personal support worker in community settings, long-term care facilities and hospital settings.
- Graduates who maintain a 3.00 GPA may be eligible to bridge directly to the second semester of the Practical Nursing Program provided there is capacity.
Across these career outcomes, salaries in Canada range from:
$19,200 to $57,500
All hands-on training will be delivered in Cambrian's state-of-the-art simulation and nursing labs, as well as various clinical placement settings throughout Greater Sudbury.
