Brittany Olson has been a part of Dumont Technical Institute as a student since 2009 when she joined the Continue Care Aid program. She successfully completed the program in 2010, and was accepted in to the Dumont Technical Institute practical nursing program in Saskatoon and is expected to graduate in May 2017. Brittany has always wanted to work in the healthcare sector. Upon graduation, she plans to work as a licensed practical nurse and possibly return to school at a later date to pursue further studies so that she may become a registered nurse or a registered practical nurse.
Although Brittany has overcome many obstacles that come with balancing a family and school, she always has a caring, friendly attitude. The Practical Nursing Program Coordinator Chantelle Jule explains that, “Brittany is a dedicated and committed student, she is able to manage a busy work load, and puts everything into perspective well. Not only is she a great student, but she is also excelling in her current career as a Continuing Care Aid.”
Brittany thanks Gabriel Dumont Institute “for the opportunity that has been life-changing.” She says, “I choose DTI because I love the atmosphere regarding education. Everyone is so wonderful here whether it be instructors, admin, staff or other students. I also really like the small classrooms. They make the learning experience much more fun.” Brittany’s favourite things about Dumont Technical Institute are the happy positive staff that loves to hear about student accomplishments and watch them succeed.
Dumont Technical Institute offers practical nursing programs in Regina, Saskatoon, and Prince Albert. To date, it is the second largest producer of practical nurses in Saskatchewan.
