UCN will be offering a Direct Health Care support workers program in the north next month.

Northern Health Region CEO Helga Bryant explains the program is being offered in partnership with the Health Region and the Northern Manitoba Sector Council to address the vacancies in long-term care homes across the region that have been pushed to the forefront thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.  She explains this program is a twelve day program offered as face to face learning and it will prepare the students as a direct health care support worker in their long term care facilities.  She says they’re calling it a pilot project and it involves work integrated learning so the student can move to a nine week extended orientation that will actually occur while they’re working so the students work , they’re in their employ while they’re doing this program so they’re working, they’re gaining income and they’re gaining an education.


The program is slated to start January 4th, and applications are due on December 14th.
