When Emily Milliken decided to pursue a career in nursing after high school, she enrolled in Confederation College’s online Pre-Health Sciences: Pathway to Advanced Diplomas and Degrees program. She then learned about the support of Contact North | Contact Nord in her area.
She connected to her classes from her home computer using Contact North | Contact Nord’s web conferencing platform. “It was perfect for me to do online,” she shares. “My schedule was flexible and I could work while taking courses.” By staying at home and completing the program online, she saved money.
For some classes, she worked from the Contact North | Contact Nord online learning centre where she had free use of computers and high-speed Internet. She also wrote exams at the online learning centre.
“I developed a good relationship with Contact North staff. They were always rooting for me and passionate about helping people,” she says.
Emily graduated from the Pre-Health Sciences program in 2015 and enrolled in Brock University/Loyalist College Collaborative on-campus Bachelor of Science in Nursing program. She graduated in January 2020 and is now working full-time at the Belleville General Hospital.
