Loyalist College Offers Diploma Program to India’s Nursing Grads

Loyalist College is opening its doors to India’s nursing graduates, and offering them an Applied Health Administration program.

The program will be launched this month and is designed to give its Indian students skills that will help them segue into the Canadian workforce.

“This innovative program will certainly enhance the opportunity for international students to obtain high quality education here in Canada,” said John McMahon, Loyalist College, Vice-President Academic. “We look forward to working with the students and helping them achieve their educational and career goals.”

The program will be delivered over five semesters. The first semester consists of online studies from students at Kular College of Nursing, Sri Guru Harkrisan Sahib College of Nursing, and Silver Oaks College of Nursing.

The subsequent semesters will be completed on Loyalist College’s campus in Belleville, Ontario. Students work towards both Health Records Clerk and Hospital Ward Clerk certificates, as well as an Office Administration–Medical diploma.

“The graduates will then be prepared to work in a range of medical office environments including dental, optical, physician, chiropractic and veterinary settings,” added McMahon.

“These professionals from India will study and work in Canada while experiencing our culture and the excitement of international travel.”

Graduates are eligible to remain and work in Canada for an additional three years with a post-graduate work permit.
