PSW

In celebration of our convocation 2023, and the opportunity for us to finally be together and celebrate in person after three years, we asked our graduates to share their Anderson College experience.

Asking, “How has Anderson College changed your life?” prompted over a hundred submissions … this is one of those extraordinary student stories.

We hope this reflection moves you, as it has our Anderson family, and inspires you to ever embrace the career and life you imagine and, truly, deserve.

Anderson College truly changed my life in such a positive and wonderful way. I am so glad I chose to attend Anderson.

It all started when I was in my prior career, I felt the need to make a change in my life. I knew I was missing something. I felt unfulfilled and had a lack of purpose. I knew I had to go back to school, however, I was very hesitant at first because I had a family and worried how that would impact everything. I decided to reach out to Anderson College and the rest is history.

“I chose to take the Personal Support Worker (PSW) program because I’ve always had a yearning to help people and wanted to feel a great purpose in the work I did.”

 

The college was so helpful and set me up with everything I needed. They answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable about starting my new journey with them. I chose to take the Personal Support Worker (PSW) program because I’ve always had a yearning to help people and wanted to feel a great purpose in the work I did.

All the staff at Anderson College were so welcoming, encouraging, and supportive from beginning to end. I took the leap of faith to change my career and am so proud and happy I did. I was able to thrive in the smaller classes and the content we studied was great. The hands-on aspect was so helpful. The program really prepared me for my new career as a PSW. I also really appreciated that the college assisted with the resume, interview, and portfolio processes. This really set me up for success in finding a job in the field that I love.

“I was able to obtain a PSW position right away and be there for residents when they really needed me.”

 


I completed the program right when the pandemic was starting. I was able to obtain a PSW position right away and be there for residents when they really needed me. It was a very difficult and dark time in healthcare, but I feel that I’m truly blessed
that I was able to be there for so many during the whole pandemic and still now. It has been fulfilling, rewarding and filled my soul with purpose. I’m doing exactly what I’m supposed to be doing and I’m so thankful that Anderson College was there to support my transformation.

Anderson College has truly changed my life and I’m so grateful for my new created future. Thank you so much!
