Testimonial from one employer who have hired our PSW graduates wrote."Students from the College of Health Studies arrive prepared to begin their hands on placement. We find the students well prepared for the placement, both with classroom learning and hands on training so they are quickly able to step up and participate actively in resident care. At times we have had students from other educational facilities who have been poorly prepared and our staff feel they have to give the basic PSW training before the students are ready to provide care. We provide the clinical placement and the students arrive ready to work and many make excellent new employees."  Director of Resident Care Holland Christian Homes.

" I am so glad that I chose to complete my Personal Support Worker - PSW course with the College of Health Studies - CHS. After shopping around and meeting with Romy at the College, my decision was quite easy. I enjoyed the smaller classes as I felt they were much more beneficial - especially since the Health Care field was so new to me. The tuition fee was a plus, as mentioned I did shop around for a while and CHS did have the best prices out there with no additional fees. I think the most amazing part of my experience here was the organization and planning put into how the course was run.
I had no issues with my placement as it was FOUND and SET UP for me. Usually with other colleges you are asked to find your own placement which I know from experience can be difficult. Last but not least, Romy is an exceptional instructor, easy to approach and always has the answer to your questions. Over all I had a great experience at the College Of Health Studies, I am proud to say that I passed the complete Personal Support Worker course with honors, and passed the new online PSW final exam. After graduating, I was hired to work in less than 2 weeks. My mother had also graduated from College of Health Studies 7 years ago as a PSW, and had gone on to become an Registered Practical Nurse - RPN. I am confident that my career journey will not end here."
Thank you College of Health Studies, N K proud Graduate 2012.
