Program: Career English Prep Program & HCA

Every journey has a story. It may be good or bad. As we go on to our journey, many obstacles and trials will come through our way. It may be a painful experience but it will be worth it in the end.

For me, studying English is one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done in my life. As a single mom, I find it very difficult because I am working multiple jobs to support the needs of my son. I don’t even have time to do my homework. I almost gave up. The excitement and joy I felt was slowly fading. It wasn’t easy for me.

But I told myself, you need to do it for the better future of your life. If others can, why can’t I? So I encouraged myself to do better and give my very best to finish this challenge. And after months of attending my classes, I’ve finally passed my English assessment and I consider that as one of my greatest achievement in my life. I made it!

What I’ve learned with this experience is that always believe in yourself that you can do everything. Always remember that there’s room for improvement and never doubt the capabilities you have. Don’t be afraid to fail, instead, consider it as a challenge and lesson because that failure will help you become a better person.

The schooling indicates to us that applicants have some systematic training in the field and are passionate about quality care; this means they are likely to be high performers and stay longer because they fully understand what the job involves. Retention is a huge consideration, those that are likely to stay longer will always be highly sought after as it takes time to build working relationships and relationships with person served.”
