Collège Acadie Î.-P.-É. student recognized
At its annual general meeting recently at the Toronto campus of Collège Boréal, the Consortium national de formation en santé (CNFS) awarded Dominique Arsenault, a student in the practical nursing program at Collège Acadie Î.-P.-É., a $1,000 scholarship and a certificate of recognition from Health Canada.
The CNFS awarded scholarships to 11 students enrolled in post-secondary health and social services programs at its member educational institutions.
These students were recognized both for excellent academics and for strong involvement in their respective communities.
Arsenault, from St. Chrysostome, likes helping others, which is why she decided to make a career in health care. She is passionate about health and wellness. Dominique is in her second year of studies, and she chose the program at Collège Acadie Î.P.-É. to learn the skills she would need to work with P.E.I. francophones who need health-care in their own environment.
Her passion comes from her experience of hospitals and long-term care facilities, but especially from her personal experience at home. After getting some work experience in nursing, she would like to go back to school to study to be a paramedic.
The next session of the practical nursing program starts in January 2016. Contact Christine Arsenault at 902-854-3010, ext. 241, or at christine. firstname.lastname@example.org, or consult the website at www.collegeacadieipe.ca.
