BSD Health Careers 2022

In the first year, I liked learning about CPR, getting certified, and teaching it to other people. The second year of the course focuses on community-based clinical rotations, which gives you the chance to experience the environment of the profession and to talk to people who have been through the training necessary. All in all, it’s a really great experience."
