Col­lège Acadie Î.-P.-É. stu­dent rec­og­nized

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CLASSIFIEDS/COMMUNITY -

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. arse­nault@col­legea­, or con­sult the web­site at www.col­legea­
