Giving you the real-world skills you need to enhance your nursing or healthcare career

Healthcare professionals are the backbone of any community, helping to raise health and safety awareness in the public and offering their expertise in a wide variety of environments and situations, making it an extremely rewarding career option.

The diverse range of continuing education healthcare courses offered by NorQuest College often combine online learning with hands-on practical skills components, with some being offered exclusively online and others being a hybrid (combination of in-person and online delivery) model.

The healthcare courses offered by NorQuest teach you how to properly obtain a health-care history and perform physical examinations, recognize life-threatening emergencies, adapt to working environments at family physician clinics, how to properly work in environments where bloodborne pathogens are exposed, and much more.

Our organization recently ran a couple half day sessions of how to hold Difficult Conversations. It was so well done and the facilitator was so engaging that people began to waitlist for it, and we had to add more sessions. The DISC assessment that was personalized to each participant and watching them explore their own results was a highlight. Our 100 participants were very appreciative- thanks Norquest.

At the end of the workshop, participants will receive a certification of completion to keep for their learning records.

The Social Media for Healthcare Professionals continuing studies course is designed to teach modern healthcare providers the basics of popular social media platforms and how they can benefit the healthcare field.
