What is a Health Care Aide?
If you consider yourself a caring individual who likes to help people, an occupation as a heath care aide may be for you.

As a HCA, you will work under the supervision of a nurse or health care professional and will be in charge of looking after clients basic needs.
Graduates of the Health Care Aide Program can expect to find work in institutional settings or homes, and can expect to work with people who have complex or chronic medical conditions, have physical or cognitive disabilities, or are otherwise unable to function normally.
