When I attended the program, I was one of the students that had an idea of what I wanted to do, but wanted to learn more. It was incredibly useful for me to meet and listen to so many health professionals, and get a bigger picture of the healthcare field, because before I had only really thought of medicine and nursing as the whole sector. It was also great to see the health care facilites at Prince George, and to meet like-minded student from all over the province.
"As a parent, I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to all those involved in this program. My daughter was fortunate to attend the 5 day program. She explained to me that it was one of the happiest times she has had through her education. She was able to meet with many other students from around BC who share the same goal as herself. She also came home with a greater sense of self worth and a higher self esteem. Thank you so much for creating this wonderful opportunity! "
When I attended this program, the only thing I knew was that I wanted to work in the healthcare field. At the time, I had never even considered nursing to be a career that I was interested in. However, this program gave me the opportunity to explore all of the meaningful careers that contribute to our healthcare system in BC, and nursing happened to be the one that I was the most drawn to. Now I’m pursuing my degree to become an RN and I owe a part of that to this program. I think that Adventures in Health Care is a unique experience which can help high school students who are unsure of what they’d like to study.
Going into Adventures in Health Care, I had absolutely no idea of what I wanted to do, but after finishing the program I had an idea of what path I wanted to follow
I was able to learn a lot of things that I wasn’t aware of before. This program allowed me to see what healthcare professions did on a day to day basis and ask them questions about their career. I think this made it easier to find which careers I am interested in and people we can relate to.
It was very enlightening and intriguing to see such a wide variety of career choices and to meet fellow students with the same passion and goals to make a difference in others lives. It has opened my eyes and I am seriously considering some of the options you shared with us. I look forward to working and serving with in the Prince George community in the near future.
