“When a loved one is sick or incapacitated, family members and friends may experience a great deal of stress when trying to provide care,” said Kelvin Otis in a blog posting at

“If a person’s illness is serious enough, they may need temporary or permanent care. Under these circumstances, it may require specialized training and knowledge to provide a proper level of care.”

Graduates of the program can find careers working in places like long-term care facilities, home health care agencies, retirement homes/residences, hospices, group homes, as well as adult and child care centres.

“To graduate from Everest’s PSW program, you are required to pass the PSW theory examination. The National Association of Career Colleges (NACC) administers this exam. Upon passing, you will receive a pin and certificate in addition to your Everest College diploma,” said Otis.

Everest has 100 campuses across North America, including Canadian cities like the Greater Toronto area, Ottawa, and Thunder Bay.
