| OC health care grad already making an impact in the field
When Zaynah Stewart crossed the stage to accept her Health Care Assistant certificate from Okanagan College on Jan. 12, she did so with the satisfaction of already having a job firmly secured.
In fact, Stewart had three job offers to choose from after graduating from the six-month Health Care Assistant program, which provides the skills and training for people interested in providing direct client care to seniors and people with disabilities.

Stewart, 25, began her career working in administrative positions but never lost sight of her lifelong dream to become a nurse.
