?in Nightingale Academy 9 yrs ago..Best college so far.Hi Cindy L theory lecturerClinical Veronica WWish they could upgrade to have Nightingale LPN courses.????
Ive gone to this school to do my Health Care Aide profession November 2011. All are knowledgeable and helpful to the process from start to finish. Practicum was great too, as a student they send you... to different settings of work that will give you an idea where you want to work for. Staff are friendly specially Brenda. The only downside going to this school is that they cost more tuition than other schools offer but overall everything is more

I appreciated the small class sizes and sense community I felt during my time with the college, and I wouldn't be where I am now in my career if it wasn't for Cindy and Linda and the Admin staff. If... your looking for a learning opportunity which include small class sizes, good atmosphere and a family like feel definitely give Nightengale a call. It's a school with a caring more

Student Testimonials

“I was part of the very first intake of the program and did my practicum at the Aspen House in Morinville. After graduation, I started working at Parkland Medical in Spruce Grove as a Medical Assistant to the doctors. The job allowed me to help with medicals and minor surgeries, etc. The Nursing Attendant Program gave me the knowledge that I needed to take on these tasks. I thank all involved in the program for the time and effort put into teaching each and every one of us.”


Nursing Attendant
Grey Nuns Hospital

"I can’t believe I’m the first male to have graduated as a Nursing Attendant. I did my 3-week practicum at the Cross Cancer Institute. They were amazed at my knowledge and skill level. The Cross was very grateful to have Nightingale students assist their staff and clients. I was hired on my last day of practicum. Currently, I work as a Nursing Attendant (0.7 – Part-time) and as a Unit Clerk. This program has helped me find my path to my goal, and my next stop, who knows??"


In Patient Nursing Attendant
Cross Cancer Institute

“I have been working at the Grey Nuns Hospital for more than a year. Some of my responsibilities include total patient care, reporting patient’s conditions to nurses and comforting patients that are dying. I love what I do! I am the eyes and hands of the nurse and much more. The Nursing Attendant Program has given me the basic skills and knowledge to nurse patients. I plan to use my education as a foundation to further my nursing career.”
