Health Care Aide

Applications are now being accepted for the Health Care Aide (HCA) Program at the
UCN Faculty of Health Swan River, The Pas and Thompson Campuses beginning on
January 7, 2019.
 
 
The Health Care Aide program is a six-month certificate program that prepares students to function as a health care team member in institutional and community settings. The program is available in a number of locations.
 
Although the program is offered on a full time basis during the day, clinical courses may be scheduled during the evening and on weekends. Students have up to five years to complete program requirements from the year of admission.
 
Graduates of the program will be knowledgeable about the basic functional requirements of individuals and families who are experiencing commonly occurring short-term and chronic mental health, physical, emotional and spiritual challenges. Chronicity, aging issues, and death and dying are explored, as well as a variety of health problems. Skills for the provision of personal care are practiced in a simulated laboratory setting prior to the actual administration of care. Graduates will be able to provide safe, ethical, empathetic, and wholistic care that is client-focused and culturally sensitive within the realms of legal health care practice.
