Four Red Deer Catholic Regional School division students are getting a taste of college learning this week.
CAREERS: the Next Generation, Alberta Health Services and Red Deer College have collaborated to offer a summer camp that allows students to explore more than 20 different health sciences programs.
The four students are participating in the health sciences career academy at Red Deer College.
“It seemed like the perfect way to get some experience and to learn about the different jobs within the hospital. I was always curious to see the different types of nurses and behind the scenes. I now know I want to go into the medical field,” said Abby Ward, Grade 12 student at École Secondaire Notre Dame High School.
“This Career Academy was an interest to me because I wanted to get more information about working in health services, as I am considering as choosing it as a profession. This will help me move forward by providing me knowledge about the variety of the careers that are in the medical field,” said Mya Lozynsky, Grade 12 student St. Joseph High School.
