My Pre-Health Sciences experience at Niagara College has benefited me by encouraging me to make new friends, be more independent and learn more about myself. During Pre-Health, we were encouraged to work in pairs during lab and complete assignments as a group. Both of these strategies helped me to come out of my shell and reach out more to others. As well as promoting team work, Pre-Health also promoted independence by installing firm due dates for assignments which made me depend on myself to get things done on time. After achieving President’s Honour Roll at Niagara College for both terms and being accepted to the Dental Assisting program at Niagara College, I hope to apply my newfound skills in hopes of continued success.
This program helped prepare me for University by making me a more confident, mature, knowledgeable student. The manner in which the teachers in the PHS program prepare you for lab reports and assignments has placed me ahead of my classmates at University. This program didn’t just teach me about Chemistry and Biology, it gave me a chance to excel and mature as a person by developing a strong work ethic, becoming a punctual student and developing a passion for understanding and applying concepts not only within a classroom setting but in all aspects of life.
I highly recommend this program for the excellent preparation it provides for entering the health field. It has given me the knowledge and confidence to pursue my goal of being a nurse.
