â€śI entered the Preparatory Health Science program straight out of high school to help prepare me for university. My grades in high school and my work ethic werenâ€™t necessarily the best, so I figured that this would be the best time to improve both. I really enjoyed the program, it met all my expectations. The professors were always there for us when we needed help and it did get me to where I wanted to go.
My next step is going to the B.Sc.N. program at Trent University. I believe Iâ€™m prepared because the Preparatory Health Science program gave me an advantage over the other students, by giving me background information on how post-secondary is going to be run and what to expect when I do get to the Trent program.
For me, nursing is the step in to the direction that I want to go. I actually want to get into med school and become a surgeon at the end, so I feel that having a medical background before I go into med school is going to really help me out with that.â€ť
The one-year Preparatory Health Science certificate program prepares students for post-secondary level science programs. Students take core courses in chemistry, biology, English and mathematics, while gaining extensive hands-on, laboratory-based learning experience.
