$71,000 for more seats in new Health Care Assistant program in Fort Nelson

The special intake program will run out of the Fort Nelson NLC Campus and the Fort Nelson Hospital for the first five months, with the final two months at the Peace Villa Care Home next to the new Fort St. John Hospital for clinical practica sessions. There will now be room for 20 students in the program, which includes free residence accommodation when in Fort Nelson. 

The province says the one-time funding is targeted at communities that don’t have enough student and employer demand for a long-term program. 

For more information on the Health Care Assistant program, contact the Fort Nelson Campus at 250-774-2741.
