Why did you choose the Anaesthesia Tech program at MBC?

I have seen many people my age reluctantly leave Nova Scotia to pursue more lucrative career opportunities out west, but it was not a sacrifice I was willing to make, so I had to make a career move. With our population aging, health care is a profession that is going to continue to grow. MBC was perfect; I learned everything I needed to know in nine months. Right here at home!

What was challenging about it?

This program is traditionally offered to LPNs and is designed for those with previous medical experience, which I did not have.

How have previous skills helped?

As a journalist I learned how to communicate effectively with people from various backgrounds. As an Anaesthesia Tech, I often communicate with patients, taking complex medical information and verbalizing it in a way patients can easily digest. Communication is key in both professions.
