Program Overview

Begin a rewarding career in the high-demand field of health care, helping those who need it the most. In just two semesters, you'll be ready to start caring for people who need assistance due to illness, aging or disability in many different health-care settings. In Sheridan's PSW program, you'll learn to provide person-centred, emotion-based care to clients across the lifespan.

Develop the skills you need to provide valuable care and support

Learn how to assist clients of all ages with activities of daily living, including:

    assisting with mobility (e.g., lifting and transferring)
    providing personal care with dignity and respect
    engaging clients in social activities and alleviating the effects of isolation
    providing therapeutic communication and building therapeutic relationships
    caring for people with common acute and chronic illnesses

Get hands-on experience through labs, simulations and clinical placements

The best way to learn is by doing — that's why Sheridan's PSW program supports learning through a clinical skills lab, simulations and clinical placements. The program includes 350 hours of hands-on clinical practice in two practicum settings: a long-term care facility and a community setting. Sheridan will arrange your placements, and a faculty member will supervise them. Many students receive job offers from their placement employers
