This program is not a piece of cake - hard work and studying was a necessity to keep up. But the instructor's wealth of knowledge and years of experience in the nursing field made learning so appealing. Holland College has prepared me, built my confidence and has proved that I can handle more than I thought I could. After graduating, I quickly entered the workforce at a government facility. I highly recommend this excellent program to anyone who is looking to work in health care.
